The Cristobal tropical storm is weakening as it approaches land, but in the coming days it will still bring downpours, gusty winds and the risks of flash floods to Louisiana.
Cristobal move north, bearing heavy rain in southeast Louisiana and further inland. Rain, wind and floods are possible along the entire northern coast of the Gulf of Mexico.
The remnants of Cristobal are expected to move north, to the Midwest, and to the Mississippi Valley, where there are also threats of floods, torrential storms, tornadoes and gusty winds.
The National Hurricane Center claims that Cristobal crashed ashore along southeast Louisiana between the mouth of the Mississippi River and Grand Isle.
