NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Tropical Storm Cristobal is bringing heavy downpours to parts of the U.S. Gulf Coast as it continues advancing toward the region. Roads were flooded in coastal Louisiana and Mississippi on Sunday, and thousands were without power even before the the storm made landfall. The National Hurricane Center in Miami says Cristobal’s maximum sustained winds are at 50 mph as of early Sunday, and it’s forecast to make landfall by Sunday night. The storm already made its presence felt with a tornado that touched down near downtown Orlando, just missing a group of protesters.
Here are the last 20 hours of #Cristobal.
Dangerous storm surge is ongoing with this storm. In addition, today brings the threat of tornadoes and heavy, flooding rains.
