Hurricane Statement
Issued: 7:25 AM CDT Jun. 22, 2017 – National Weather Service

This product covers southwest Louisiana and southeast Texas

**cindy expected to weaken while moving farther inland**

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

* changes to watches and warnings:
    - none

* current watches and warnings:
    - a Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for Acadia, Calcasieu,
      East Cameron, Hardin, Iberia, Jefferson, Jefferson Davis,
      Lafayette, lower St. Martin, Orange, southern Jasper, southern
      Newton, St. Mary, upper St. Martin, Vermilion, and West Cameron

* storm information:
    - 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.

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

As of 4 am CDT, Tropical Storm Cindy has made landfall over southwest
Louisiana. Areas of rain and heavier rainbands around the center of
Cindy continue to develop and track across parts of the area. This is
expected to continue throughout today, with an attendant risk of
localized flash flooding and isolated tornadoes.

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

Storm surge flooding will result in coastal inundation of 1 to 2 feet
above ground level during the morning hours at the time of predicted
astronomical high tide. Southerly winds will likely result in coastal
flooding lingering after the tropical storm has moved completely
inland.

Cindy continue to develop and track across parts of the area. This is
expected to continue throughout today, with an attendant risk of
localized flash flooding and isolated tornadoes.

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

Storm surge flooding will result in coastal inundation of 1 to 2 feet
above ground level during the morning hours at the time of predicted
astronomical high tide. Southerly winds will likely result in coastal
flooding lingering after the tropical storm has moved completely
inland.

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 and southeast Texas. 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.

* 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.

* Surge:
potential impacts from the main surge event are now unfolding across
coastal southeast Texas and coastal southwest 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.

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

As of 1a M CDT, Tropical Storm Cindy continues to track toward the
southeast Texas and southwest Louisiana coastlines, and is forecast to
reach the coast near Johnson Bayou sometime early Thursday morning.
Dry air and environmental wind shear continue to negatively affect the
structure and organization of Cindy, with the center of circulation
relatively void of shower and thunderstorm activity.

Areas of rain and heavier rainbands well north of the center continue
to develop and track across parts of the area this evening. This is
expected to continue through the overnight hours as the storm nears
the coast, with an attendant risk of localized flash flooding and
isolated tornadoes.

Storm surge flooding will result in coastal inundation of 1 to 2 feet
above ground level during the overnight hours at the time of predicted
astronomical high tide.

Tropical storm force winds, mainly in the form of gusts, will
gradually spread north through the rest of the night as the center

Jasper, northern Newton, Orange, southern Jasper, southern
Newton, and Tyler.

* Through this evening

* periods of heavy rainfall are expected across the area as
rainbands rotate around the center of Tropical Storm Cindy
today. Excessive rainfall will be capable of producing flash
flooding. Average rainfall amounts of 3 to 5 inches are
expected with isolated higher amounts.

* The flooding of roads, low lying areas, and areas with poor
drainage will be possible. If encountering flooded roadways,
remember to turn around, don't drown.

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.




Tropical Storm Warning
Issued: 7:04 AM CDT Jun. 22, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Tropical Storm Warning remains in effect...

* locations affected
    - Lake Charles
    - Sulphur
    - Westlake

* wind
    - latest local forecast: below tropical storm force wind
        - peak wind forecast: 10-20 mph with gusts to 30 mph

    - current threat to life and property: elevated
        - the wind threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Remain braced against the reasonable threat for tropical
          storm force wind of 39 to 57 mph.
        - To be safe, efforts should fully focus on avoiding injury.
          Properties remain subject to limited wind impacts.
        - Now is the time to hide from the wind. Remain sheltered
          until the hazardous wind subsides.

    - Potential impacts: unfolding
        - potential impacts from the main wind event are unfolding.

* Storm surge
    - no storm surge inundation forecast

    - current threat to life and property: none
        - the storm surge threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Emergency planning for this event need not include a threat
          for storm surge flooding. The ground will remain largely
          unflooded from surge water or only have spots minimally
          affected by surge water encroachment. Surf conditions may
          still be rough with some beach erosion. Stronger than
          normal rip currents may also be present.
        - Little to no preparations needed to guard against storm
          surge flooding at this time.
        - Ensure readiness for the next storm surge event.

    - Potential impacts: little to none
        - little to no potential impacts from storm surge flooding.

* Flooding rain
    - latest local forecast: Flash Flood Watch is in effect
        - peak rainfall amounts: additional 2-4 inches, with locally
          higher amounts

    - current threat to life and property: moderate
        - the flooding rain threat has remained nearly steady from
          the previous assessment.
        - Emergency considerations should include a threat of
          flooding.
        - Be safe and remain ready to protect against flooding rain
          impacts.
        - If flood related watches and warnings are in effect, heed
          recommended actions.

    - Potential impacts: significant
        - 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.

* Tornado
    - latest local forecast:
        - situation is somewhat favorable for tornadoes

    - current threat to life and property: elevated
        - the tornado threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Emergency considerations should include a reasonable threat
          for tornadoes.
        - Be safe and remain ready to protect against tornado
          impacts. Stay informed.
        - Listen for tornado watches and warnings. If a tornado
          approaches, quickly move to the safest place within your
          shelter.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - 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.

        - Emergency planning for this event need not include a threat
          for storm surge flooding. The ground will remain largely
          unflooded from surge water or only have spots minimally
          affected by surge water encroachment. Surf conditions may
          still be rough with some beach erosion. Stronger than
          normal rip currents may also be present.

        - Rivers and tributaries may quickly rise with swifter
          currents. Small streams, creeks, canals, and ditches may
          become swollen and overflow in spots.
        - Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in
          usually vulnerable spots. A few places where rapid ponding
          of water occurs at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor
          drainage areas. Several storm drains and retention ponds
          become near-full and begin to overflow. Some brief Road and
          bridge closures.
