Tropical Storm Cindy is slamming areas from the Florida Panhandle to eastern Texas Wednesday, and is responsible for at least one death in Alabama. 

A 10-year-old boy died in Fort Morgan, Ala. Wednesday after being struck by a log washed in by a storm surge. He died of injuries he sustained from the debris hitting him, according to the Weather Channel.


The National Weather Service said early Wednesday that flash flood watches covered parts of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia as the slow-moving storm trudged closer to the U.S. mainland, Fox News reported.

The heavy rains are said to be on its east side, meaning the major rain threat stretched from southeastern Louisiana to the Florida Panhandle.


Extremely heavy rains from the massive storm are creating flooding in low-lying areas along the Alabama coast, officials said. Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey issued a state of emergency Tuesday. (See Below)

Governor Ivey Issues Statewide State of Emergency in Preparation for Severe Weather

MONTGOMERY– Governor Kay Ivey on Tuesday declared a statewide State of Emergency in anticipation of severe weather moving through Alabama starting on Tuesday.  The National Weather Service is forecasting significant flash flooding possible Tuesday through Thursday as tropical moisture moves northward into the state.

The National Weather Service predicts heavy rain combined with the current saturated soil conditions will result in the potential for significant flash flooding, especially closer to the coast. This statewide State of Emergency is effective as of Tuesday at 10:00 a.m.

“Hurricane season is underway and that means the potential for increased tropical activity along the Gulf Coast,” Governor Kay Ivey said. “To ensure the state of Alabama is prepared, I have issued a State of Emergency effective today. This State of Emergency will guarantee state resources are on standby and are ready to assist impacted communities if necessary.”

Governor Ivey also ordered the State Emergency Operations Center in Clanton activated to level three. This level of activation will allow AEMA staff to monitor the impact of the severe weather. In addition, the Alabama National Guard is being activated in preparation for the potential impact of the severe weather.

“Based on the forecast and prediction of the National Weather Service Offices for Alabama, residents need to start preparing for widespread rain totals of 4 to 8 inches with isolated areas of greater than 10 inches possible through Thursday,” Alabama Emergency Management Agency Director, Art Faulkner said. “Being prepared for potential flood conditions is critical, because flash flooding can be a very dangerous situation.”

The State of Emergency will be effective at 10:00 a.m. Tuesday and will remain in effect until the threat diminishes.
