Heavy rain, winds, tor­nado warn­ings as Cindy heads in­land

NEW OR­LEANS | High tides in the wake of a weak­en­ing Trop­i­cal

De­pres­sion Cindy prompted a vol­un­tary evac­u­a­tion in a coastal Louisiana town Thurs­day, and the storm’s ef­fects were be­ing felt through­out the South­east, with in­ter­mit­tent bands of heavy rain, blasts of high wind and pe­ri­odic warn­ings of pos­si­ble tor­na­does in mul­ti­ple states.

In Alabama, where Gov. Kay Ivey urged res­i­dents to stay alert for dan­ger­ous weather, two tor­nado warn­ings were is­sued in the Birm­ing­ham and Tuscaloosa ar­eas. So­cial me­dia showed pho­to­graphs of what ap­peared to be a fun­nel cloud near Birm­ing­ham.

Ear­lier, au­thor­i­ties had is­sued warn­ings of pos­si­ble tor­na­does in Louisiana and Mis­sis­sippi.
