Stefkovich said after the system moves north out of Alabama, another front is expected to bring scattered showers and thunderstorms, including more heavy rain.

Cindy crossed the coast between Cameron, La., and Port Arthur, Texas.at about 4 a.m. The Coast Guard lowered a dewatering pump to help pump out the boat and then escorted it safely back to Freeport, TX.

A flash flood watch was issued through Friday afternoon for the southern and eastern half of the state.

Hillman said the Almyra area had not received significant rainfall in more than a week, and that a nearby farmer on Thursday was running his irrigation system even though rain was on the horizon.

Sheriff's deputies have responded to almost 40 rescue calls of people swimming in the gulf as the tropical storm brought heavy rain, high winds, and even water spouts to the Florida panhandle.

A boy on an Alabama beach was struck and killed Wednesday by a log washed ashore by storm surge from Tropical Storm Cindy, which spun bands of severe weather ashore from the Florida panhandle to east Texas as it churned ever closer to the Gulf coast.

The storm's maximum sustained winds had decreased to near 40 miles per hour (64 kph) Thursday morning with additional weakening expected, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said.

"Right now, we're not anticipating any severe weather with these storms", Villanueva said. Cindy also caused widespread highway and street flooding and several short-lived tornadoes, but no other deaths or serious injuries were reported as of midday Thursday.
