Cindy downgraded to depression, continues to bring heavy rain

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Tropical Storm Cindy has been downgraded to a tropical depression and is weakening as it heads inland.  But bands of heavy rain are continuing – with heavy rain in parts of Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee.

A tropical storm warning from High Island, Texas, to Morgan City, Louisiana, has been discontinued, hours after the storm made landfall.

At 10 a.m. CDT Thursday, TD Cindy was about 165 miles northwest of Morgan City and moving to the north at 13 mph. A turn toward the northeast is expected.

Cindy or its remnants are forecast to move into Arkansas early Friday, then into Tennessee.

Heavy rainfall is expected to spread over the Tennessee and Ohio valleys Thursday, then into the central Appalachians Friday and Saturday.
