These storms will be scattered, so not everyone will see rain, but those that do can anticipate heavy rain and lightning.

Already blamed for one death in Alabama, Cindy was expected to keep churning seas and spin off bands of severe weather from eastern Texas to northwestern Florida.

Heavy rain was forecast to spread over the Tennessee and OH valleys on Thursday, then move Friday and Saturday into the central Appalachians. The dugout of a baseball field is destroyed in Fort Walton Beach, Fla., on Tuesday, June 20, 2017, as severe weather from Tropical Storm Cindy brushed along the northwest coast of Florida Wednesday mo.

Forecasters are warning of life-threatening flash floods and severe thunderstorms as the eye of Storm Cindy moves further inland across Louisiana.

Dustin Harrell, Extension rice specialist, LSU AgCenter, said much of the south Louisiana crop was planted on or around Valentine's Day this year, a historically early date for planting rice, even in the southern part of the state.

There were widespread reports of street and road flooding along the Gulf Coast as far east as Florida, where the National Park Service reported the bridge closed between Navarre Beach and Pensacola Beach.

As of now, the main impacts to Southwest Louisiana will be the heavy rain threat that could lead to flash flooding Wednesday through Friday, and the secondary threat will be the gusty winds associated with the land falling storm Wednesday night through Thursday morning.

Rainfall amounts of 1 to 4 inches are expected to begin and expand across parts of the Tennessee and OH valleys.

He also activated four Texas Task Force 1 boat squads and two Texas Military Department vehicles squads of five vehicles each to respond to any weather-related emergencies.

They also expected flooding of the same level "elsewhere along the coast from southeastern Louisiana to the western Florida Panhandle in areas of strong onshore winds".
