Hurricane Statement
Issued: 10:41 AM CDT Jun. 22, 2017 – National Weather Service

This product covers southwest Louisiana and southeast Texas

**tropical depression Cindy continues to weaken but heavy rains continue**


New information
---------------

* changes to watches and warnings:
    - all watches and warnings have been canceled

* current watches and warnings:
    - none

* storm information:
    - about 60 miles north-northwest of Lake Charles la or about 60
      miles west-southwest of Alexandria la
    - 31.0n 93.5w
    - storm intensity 35 mph
    - movement north or 10 degrees at 13 mph

Situation overview
------------------

As of 10 am CDT, Tropical Depression Cindy was located 60 miles
north-northwest of Lake Charles la. The track continues towards the
north at 13 mph. Cindy has continued to weaken this morning after
making landfall with this overall pattern expected to continue.

Areas of rain and heavier rainbands continue to swirl around the remains
of Cindy as the depression tracks northward. The threat for localized flash
flooding and isolated tornadoes will continue.

Storm surge flooding will result in coastal inundation of 1 to 3 feet
above ground level through the afternoon hours. Thereafter a slow
fall is expected through the evening.

Strong and gusty winds will continue to taper off through the afternoon
hours as Cindy lifts northward and away from the region.

Potential impacts
-----------------

* flooding rain:
additional impacts from flooding rain are still a concern across the
entire area. Remain well guarded against life-threatening flood waters
having further impacts of extensive potential.

Additional impacts from flooding rain are still a concern across the entire
area. Remain well guarded against dangerous flood waters having further
impacts of limited to significant potential.

* Wind:
little to no additional wind impacts expected.

    - Community officials are now assessing the extent of actual wind
      impacts accordingly.
    - Emergency work crews are restoring essential community
      infrastructure as necessary.
    - If you have an emergency dial 9 1 1.


* Tornadoes:
additional impacts from tornadoes are still a concern across
southwest Louisiana and southeast Texas. Remain well braced against
tornado event having further limited impact potential.

* Surge:
minor surge impacts along the immediate coast.

    - Community officials are now assessing the extent of actual
      surge impacts accordingly.
    - Emergency work crews are restoring essential community
      infrastructure as necessary.
    - If you have an emergency dial 9 1 1.

Elsewhere across southwest Louisiana and southeast Texas, little to
no impact is anticipated.

Precautionary/preparedness actions
----------------------------------


* other preparedness information:

If your home or shelter was damaged, be alert to the smell of natural
gas leaks and cautious around exposed electrical wiring, broken
glass, jagged metal and wood, and protruding nails and screws.

Check to see if everyone in your group is OK. Administer first aid to
those who are injured. Call 9 1 1 for any serious injuries. Remember,
it may be more difficult for emergency responders to arrive quickly
in the time period immediately following the storm.

Be a good neighbor and check on those living next to you. Be
neighborly and lend a helping hand.


When clearing out fallen trees, be careful with chain saws and axes.
Always wear protective gear and keep others at a safe distance. Use
these tools according to operating manuals and safety instruction.
Leaning trees and those which have fallen on roof tops can be
especially challenging. If you are not in good health or unsure about
what you are doing, have someone else with tree cutting experience do
the job. Never cut trees without a partner.

If using a generator, avoid Carbon monoxide poisoning by following
instructions by the manufacturer. Make sure that the generator is run
in a well ventilated space.

Problems with sewer backups can further contaminate standing flood
waters. Keep children away. Also, listen for boil water alerts
relative to communities whose tap water may have become non-potable.

    - about 40 miles northwest of Lake Charles la
    - 30.5n 93.7w
    - storm intensity 40 mph
    - movement north or 360 degrees at 12 mph

Situation overview
------------------

As of 7 am CDT, the center of Tropical Storm Cindy continues to move
further inland over western Louisiana. Rainbands around the center of
Cindy will continue to develop and track across parts of the area
today. The main risk from these rainbands will be heavy rainfall and
flash flooding. There will also be a risk for isolated tornadoes within
the rainbands with the greatest risk of tornadoes for areas along and
east of Interstate 49.

Tropical storm force winds, mainly in the form of gusts, will
continue portions of southwest Louisiana into the early afternoon.

Storm surge flooding will result in continued coastal inundation of 1
to 2 feet above ground level through the day.

Potential impacts
-----------------

* flooding rain:
potential impacts from the flooding rain are still unfolding across
southeast Texas and southwest Louisiana. Remain well guarded against
dangerous flood waters having possible significant impacts. If
realized, these impacts include:
    - moderate rainfall flooding may prompt several evacuations and
      rescues.
    - Rivers and tributaries may quickly become swollen with swifter
      currents and overspill their banks in a few places, especially
      in usually vulnerable spots. Small streams, creeks, canals, and
      ditches overflow.
    - Flood waters can enter some structures or weaken foundations.
      Several places may experience expanded areas of rapid
      inundation at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage
      areas. Some streets and parking lots take on moving water as
      storm drains and retention ponds overflow. Driving conditions
      become hazardous. Some Road and bridge closures.

Potential impacts from the flooding rain are still unfolding across
coastal Louisiana. Remain well guarded against locally hazardous flood
waters having possible limited impacts.

* Wind:
potential impacts from the main wind event are now unfolding across
southwest Louisiana. Remain well sheltered from hazardous wind having
possible limited impacts. If realized, these impacts include:
    - damage to porches, awnings, carports, sheds, and unanchored
      Mobile homes. Unsecured lightweight objects blown about.
    - Many large tree limbs broken off. A few trees snapped or
      uprooted, but with greater numbers in places where trees are
      shallow rooted. Some fences and roadway signs blown over.
    - A few roads impassable from debris, particularly within urban
      or heavily wooded places. Hazardous driving conditions on
      bridges and other elevated roadways.
    - Scattered power and communications outages.

* Surge:
potential impacts from the main surge event are now unfolding across
coastal southeast Texas and coastal Louisiana. Remain well away from
locally hazardous surge having additional limited impacts. If
realized, these impacts include:
    - localized inundation with storm surge flooding mainly along
      immediate shorelines and in low-lying spots, or in areas
      farther inland along rivers and bayous that drain into the Gulf.
    - Sections of roads and parking lots near bodies of water may
      become overspread with surge water. Driving conditions
      dangerous in places where surge water covers the Road.
    - Moderate beach erosion. Heavy surf also breaching dunes, mainly
      in usually vulnerable locations. Strong rip currents.
    - Minor to locally moderate damage to marinas, docks, and piers.
      A few small craft broken away from moorings.

Elsewhere across southwest Louisiana and southeast Texas, little to
no impact is anticipated.

* Tornadoes:
potential impacts from tornadoes are still unfolding across southwest
Louisiana and southeast Texas. Remain well braced against a tornado
event having possible limited impacts. If realized, these impacts
include:
    - the occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the execution
      of emergency plans during tropical events.
    - A few places may experience tornado damage, along with power
      and communications disruptions.
    - Locations could realize roofs peeled off buildings, chimneys
      toppled, Mobile homes pushed off foundations or overturned,
      large Tree Tops and branches snapped off, shallow-rooted trees
      knocked over, moving vehicles blown off roads, and small boats
      pulled from moorings.

Precautionary/preparedness actions
----------------------------------

* other preparedness information:

Now is the time to remain safely sheltered from the storm. Stay inside
and away from windows. Listen for updates and be ready in case you
lose electrical power. Locate your battery powered radio and flashlight
from your emergency supplies kit. Keep these items close.

Continue to keep your cell phone well charged for as long as
possible. If you lose power, use it more sparingly and mainly for
personal emergencies and check-ins.
