1 Dead As Cindy Spins Severe Weather Along Gulf Coast
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Weather forecasters are expecting a third day of rough weather for Gulf Coast states as Tropical Storm Cindy approaches.
The storm was blamed for one death Wednesday: A 10-year-old boy from the St. Louis area was killed on an Alabama beach when he was struck by a log that washed ashore.
In addition to bands of drenching rain, the storm brought high winds and numerous, short-lived tornadoes and waterspouts. Most of the severe weather was to the east of the storm.
Numerous coastal roads and highways flooded and there were scattered reports of power outages and building damage from wind or water.
