Hurricane threat developing

The National Weather Service on Wednesday was advising that a hurricane threat was increasing for the region.
People should be prepared for hurricane-force winds by Saturday, with tropical force winds starting on Friday.
Rainfall totals will be 10 to 15 inches along and right of the path and will result in significant flooding.
The path given by Weather Service has the storm in the Gulf of Mexico and south of Eunice by 7 a.m. Saturday. The track shows a landfall in southwest Louisiana.

Tropical storm approaching; heavy rains forecast

The National Weather Service in Lake Charles reports Tropical Storm Cindy has sustained winds of 60 mph as it moves northwest across the Gulf of Mexico. Landfall projections bring it to the Texas-Louisiana state line by early Thursday morning, but we will see impacts before then. A tropical storm warning and a flash flood watch is in effect for our entire region. Winds will be gusting to tropical storm force this morning in parts of south central Louisiana this morning, and extend into southwest Louisiana and southeast Texas this afternoon.
