This product covers SOUTHWEST LOUISIANA AND SOUTHEAST TEXAS **Tropical Storm Warnings Continue For Portions Of South Central Louisiana** NEW INFORMATION --------------- * CHANGES TO WATCHES AND WARNINGS: - None * CURRENT WATCHES AND WARNINGS: - A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for Iberia, Lower St. Martin, St. Mary, Upper St. Martin, and Vermilion * STORM INFORMATION: - About 270 miles south-southeast of Intracoastal City LA or about 250 miles south-southeast of Morgan City LA - 26.2N 90.2W - Storm Intensity 50 mph - Movement North or 360 degrees at 12 mph SITUATION OVERVIEW ------------------ At 1000 PM CDT, the center of Tropical Storm Cristobal was located near latitude 26.2 North, longitude 90.2 West. Cristobal is moving toward the north near 12 mph and this general motion is expected to continue for the next day or so, followed by a gradual turn toward the north-northwest. On the forecast track, the center of Cristobal will be near the northern Gulf of Mexico coast on Sunday. Cristobal`s center is then forecast to move inland across Louisiana late Sunday through Monday morning, and northward across Arkansas and Missouri Monday afternoon into Tuesday. Tropical storm force winds are likely within the Tropical Storm Warning over the coastal waters beginning tonight and likely within the Tropical Storm Warning along the coast early Sunday. There is the potential for heavy rainfall that may lead to flash flooding over portions of south central Louisiana late Sunday into Monday near the track of Cristobal. Coastal flooding from storm surge of 1 to 3 feet above the ground will also be possible by late Sunday into early Monday, mainly around the Vermilion and Atchafalaya Bays when onshore flow returns. There is a low end potential for a few isolated tornadoes as early as Sunday afternoon in lower Acadiana with some of the leading outer bands. POTENTIAL IMPACTS ----------------- * FLOODING RAIN: Protect against dangerous rainfall flooding having possible significant impacts across south and south central Louisiana. Potential impacts include: - Moderate rainfall flooding may prompt several evacuations and rescues. - Rivers and tributaries may quickly become swollen with swifter currents and overspill their banks in a few places, especially in usually vulnerable spots. Small streams, creeks, canals, and ditches overflow. - Flood waters can enter some structures or weaken foundations. Several places may experience expanded areas of rapid inundation at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage areas. Some streets and parking lots take on moving water as storm drains and retention ponds overflow. Driving conditions become hazardous. Some road and bridge closures. Protect against locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible limited impacts across south and south central Louisiana. * SURGE: Protect against locally hazardous surge having possible limited impacts across south central Louisiana. Potential impacts in this area include: - Localized inundation with storm surge flooding mainly along immediate shorelines and in low-lying spots, or in areas farther inland along rivers and bayous that drain into the Gulf. - Sections of roads and parking lots near bodies of water may become overspread with surge water. Driving conditions dangerous in places where surge water covers the road. - Moderate beach erosion. Heavy surf also breaching dunes, mainly in usually vulnerable locations. Strong rip currents. - Minor to locally moderate damage to marinas, docks, and piers. A few small craft broken away from moorings. Elsewhere across SOUTHWEST LOUISIANA AND SOUTHEAST TEXAS, little to no impact is anticipated. * WIND: Protect against hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across locations around the Vermilion and Atchafalaya Bays. Potential impacts in this area include: - Damage to porches, awnings, carports, sheds, and unanchored mobile homes. Unsecured lightweight objects blown about. - Many large tree limbs broken off. A few trees snapped or uprooted, but with greater numbers in places where trees are shallow rooted. Some fences and roadway signs blown over. - A few roads impassable from debris, particularly within urban or heavily wooded places. Hazardous driving conditions on bridges and other elevated roadways. - Scattered power and communications outages. Elsewhere across SOUTHWEST LOUISIANA AND SOUTHEAST TEXAS, little to no impact is anticipated. * TORNADOES: Protect against a tornado event having possible limited impacts across south central Louisiana. Potential impacts include: - The occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the execution of emergency plans during tropical events. - A few places may experience tornado damage, along with power and communications disruptions. - Locations could realize roofs peeled off buildings, chimneys toppled, mobile homes pushed off foundations or overturned, large tree tops and branches snapped off, shallow-rooted trees knocked over, moving vehicles blown off roads, and small boats pulled from moorings. Elsewhere across SOUTHWEST LOUISIANA AND SOUTHEAST TEXAS, little to no impact is anticipated. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS ---------------------------------- * EVACUATIONS: * WATCH/WARNING PHASE - Listen to local official for recommended preparedness actions, including possible evacuation. If ordered to evacuate, do so immediately. * * OTHER PREPAREDNESS INFORMATION: * Now is the time to complete all preparations to protect life and property in accordance with your emergency plan. Ensure you are in a safe location before the onset of strong winds or possible flooding. Closely monitor weather.gov, NOAA Weather radio or local news outlets for official storm information. Be ready to adapt to possible changes to the forecast. Ensure you have multiple ways to receive weather warnings. * * ADDITIONAL SOURCES OF INFORMATION: - For information on appropriate preparations see ready.gov - For information on creating an emergency plan see getagameplan.org - For additional disaster preparedness information see redcross.org NEXT UPDATE ----------- The next local statement will be issued by the National Weather Service in Lake Charles LA around 5 AM CDT, or sooner if conditions warrant.
