Tropical storm Cindy continues to move through the Gulf of Mexico, hovering south of Louisiana and bringing potentially flooding rain late this week. Dangerous hide tides and rip currents are expected.

The Louisiana National Guard dispatched high water vehicles and helicopters into the targeted areas and the state said the Federal Emergency Management Agency was moving 125,000 meals and 200,000 liters of water into Louisiana, according to AP.

Several public beaches at the Gulf shores have warned visitors to stay away.

The warning has been issued from San Luis Pass, Texas, to the Mississippi river, including Houston, Galvenston, Lake Charles, Louisiana and Lafayette.

A tornado watch is also in effect for southwest Alabama, Southeast Louisiana, Southern Mississippi and west Florida until 7pm today due to increase tropical moisture.

Louisiana will see the greatest risk of isolated tornadoes. The risk will persist into Thursday.
