Grand Isle, Louisiana, residents were preparing for Tropical Storm Cindy on Tuesday, June 20. Workers have strengthened a recently-repaired levee, according to a news report, and officials asked people to monitor weather reports. The coastal community, popular for fishing, could see four to 15 inches of rain and a tidal surge of one to three feet, the report said. The National Hurricane Center upgraded the system to a tropical storm on Tuesday, issuing tropical storm warnings along the Louisiana coast. The center also warned of rainfall amounts that could produce “life-threatening flash floods.” The storm is predicted to make landfall on Thursday.
