Cindy causes minor flooding across South as rain continues

A man shields himself from the rain while riding his bicycle on the intersection of St. Emmanuel and Leeland streets Thursday, June 22, 2017, in Houston as Tropical Storm Cindy hit.

On June 22 at 2:21 a.m. EDT (0621 UTC) GPM very little rainfall near Cindy's center of circulation but bands of moderate to heavy showers were seen moving into the states along the Gulf Coast. "And once we knew there was potential that it could make landfall and come up towards the Tennessee River Valley, we began making preparations".

The National Weather Service said Tropical Depression Cindy is continuing to produce heavy rain around the Mississippi Valley.

Heavy rainfall associated with remnants of the storm caused scattered street flooding across central and southern IN on Friday. On Thursday afternoon, a tornado produced damage around the Birmingham, Alabama, region.

A complex weather pattern today, including the remnants of Tropical Storm Cindy, is likely to dump heavy rains in parts of Upstate New York today.

The storms stretching for hundreds of miles (kilometers) are expected to push river levels higher in coming days as the remnants of a tropical storm cross Tennessee and Kentucky into West Virginia.

Residents in parts of Texas, Louisiana, Florida and MS experienced moderate to severe flooding from Cindy's heavy rain and strong storm surge.

Residents from the Gulf Coast to the interior South continued to bare the brunt of damaging impacts from Cindy on Thursday, including unsafe surf, flash flooding, tornadoes and strong winds. A boy killed by debris in storm surf off Alabama was the only fatality reported so far in the storm, which spun off tornadoes and caused street flooding in many coastal areas. Weakening was expected once Cindy moved over land.
