Tropical Storm Cindy is still tracking to make landfall between Beaumont and Lake Charles.  Which means Lake Charles will get the full brunt of the strongest eastern side of the storm.  TS Cindy has taken a lop-sided shape due to fighting with a high pressure system at the top of the Gulf.  This battle has created a more dominate eastern side, which is terrible news not only for Lake Charles but New Orleans as well.  The cities on the eastern side of TS Cindy will see the most potent wind and rain.

Currently she is moving NW at 9 mph, winds are still sustained at 50 mph and should make landfall here on the coast around 5 to 6 am tomorrow morning and making her way to Lake Charles around 7 am.  We should start feeling Tropical Storm winds around 5pm leading up to landfall.

From now until landfall there's a 40% higher chance that SWLA will see Tornado activity being spun out by Tropical Storm Cindy.

Be safe and do not put you or your loved ones in dangers way, play it safe and stay indoors.
