Forecasters counting tornadoes in Alabama

Forecasters counting tornadoes in Alabama

The tropical storm should weaken to a tropical depression later today, and become a remnant low tonight. The storm is moving north-northeast at 10 miles per hour.

A suspected tornado near Birmingham, Ala., flattened businesses and injured one person, while the mayor of low-lying Lafitte, La., urged residents to evacuate ahead of a rising tide.

A viewer tweeted images of a demolished KFC restaurant in Fairfield, which is also a western suburb of Birmingham. Dean Argo, a spokesman for the Alabama Alcoholic Beverage Control Board said one employee of the liquor store was hurt. People are being warned to stay off the road. Earlier, authorities had issued warnings of possible tornadoes in Louisiana and Mississippi. The last tropical system to make landfall on the Texas coast was Tropical Storm Bill in June 2015.

The western portion of the state is expected to be the most likely area to experience an isolated, short-lived tornado, according to the NWS, which rated the possibility of a twister taking shape as marginal to slight. Cindy dropped 6.8 inches of rain on Prattville, AL.

Cindy continued to move slowly inland Thursday bringing severe weather in its path. He died at the scene.

In Alabama, a statewide emergency was declared by the Governor, referring to the National Meteorological Service's forecasts of a violent sudden flood that was possible on Thursday, as tropical moisture moved north to the state.

Labeled a 1,000-year flood by the National Weather Service, the storm destroyed more than 2,100 homes statewide and damaged another 2,000.

It is forecast to reach southeastern Arkansas early Friday and Tennessee later that day, the NHC said.

WEDNESDAY: Mostly sunny, with a high near 79.

The storm's effects have been felt along a long swath of the coast because the storm is disorganized.

COASTAL FLOOD ADVISORY: Southeasterly and easterly winds will help to pile waters along the coasts. An unidentified man looks at a truck that was crushed by a falling tree in Fort Walton Beach, Florida on Wednesday, June 21, 2017.

Flash flood watches were in effect in much of Kentucky.

The storm could cause a surge of up to three feet (1 meter) in isolated areas from southeastern Louisiana to the western Florida Panhandle, and possibly spawn tornados from the lower MS and Tennessee Valley regions to the central Gulf Coast, the NHC said.

The National Weather Service says a storm spreading across the Tennessee and OH valleys is winding down.
