Watches & Warnings

Hurricane Statement
Issued: 4:36 AM CDT Jun. 22, 2017 – National Weather Service

This product covers southeast Louisiana and south Mississippi

**coastal flooding... tornadoes... and heavy rainfall remain a threat
as Tropical Storm Cindy moves inland**


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

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

* current watches and warnings:
    - none

* storm information:
    - about 200 miles west of New Orleans la or about 270 miles west
      of Gulfport MS
    - 29.9n 93.6w
    - storm intensity 40 mph
    - movement north or 360 degrees at 12 mph

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

As of 4 am CDT, Tropical Storm Cindy has made landfall in southwest
Louisiana and will continue to move inland and weaken over the next
several hours. All tropical storm warnings for the area have been
cancelled, and tropical storm force winds are no longer expected for
the area. However, strong onshore winds of 25 to 30 mph will
continue today and tomorrow. These winds will keep tides elevated
at between 1 and 3 feet above normal along coastal sections of
Louisiana and Mississippi through tomorrow afternoon. A coastal
flood advisory is now in effect for these areas due to the continued
coastal flooding issues.

A Tornado Watch is also in effect for the area through the early
afternoon hours as rain bands rotating around Tropical Storm Cindy
move across southeast Louisiana and southern Mississippi. The threat
of tornadoes developing in these rain bands will persist through the
morning and early afternoon hours. Finally, these rain bands could
produce some locally heavy rainfall and cause additional flooding
concerns due to the already saturated soil conditions in place.
A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect for the entire area through
this evening.

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

* flooding rain:
additional impacts from flooding rain are still a concern across
southeast Louisiana and south Mississippi. Remain well guarded
against locally hazardous flood waters having further impacts of
limited potential.

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

* Surge:
additional impacts from surge are still a concern across
coastal southeast Louisiana and coastal Mississippi. Remain well
guarded against locally hazardous storm surge having further
impacts of limited 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.


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

* evacuations:

None.

* Other preparedness information:

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

Do not go sightseeing within impacted communities simply to observe
storm damage. Sightseers can interfere with the timeliness of
rescuers and first responders to needlessly jeopardize lives.

When inspecting damage, use flashlights rather than candles or flamed
lighting. Be aware of Sparks that can ignite leaking gas or other
flammables.

Do not go up on your roof until the rain and strong winds have
subsided. Ladders can be slippery in the rain and unexpected wind
gusts can blow you off of the roof. Do not risk bodily harm in an
attempt to reduce property damage.

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.

Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 4:01 AM CDT Jun. 22, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through this evening...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of southeast Louisiana and Mississippi, including the
following areas, in southeast Louisiana, Ascension,
Assumption, East Baton Rouge, East Feliciana, Iberville,
Livingston, lower Jefferson, lower Lafourche, lower
Plaquemines, lower St. Bernard, lower Terrebonne, northern
Tangipahoa, Orleans, Pointe Coupee, southern Tangipahoa, St.
Charles, St. Helena, St. James, St. John The Baptist, St.
Tammany, upper Jefferson, upper Lafourche, upper Plaquemines,
upper St. Bernard, upper Terrebonne, Washington, West Baton
Rouge, and West Feliciana. In Mississippi, Amite, Hancock,
Harrison, Jackson, Pearl River, Pike, Walthall, and Wilkinson.

* Through this evening

* additional rainfall amounts of 1 to 3 inches with isolated
higher amounts possible. These additional amounts will be found
mainly inside rainfall bands that train over the same areas. In
addition to the flash flooding potential we can expect to see
further rises on area rivers leading to flooding along several
rivers. Drainage of heavy rainfall will be impeded along the
coast where high tides and areas of coastal inundation continue.


Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.
