Central Wisconsin in line for dose of Tropical Storm Cristobal

Central Wisconsin in line for dose of Tropical Storm Cristobal”

The storm has already seen a tornado being spawned in Central Florida, with more potentially forming in parts of Alabama, Louisiana and MS as Cristobal moves northwards.

New Orleans and the areas to its immediate east should see the most rainfall, according to Phillips.

He adds it won't be the full tropical storm effect, but it won't be a typical storm either.

No injuries have yet been reported, however, tree limbs were knocked down and there were power outages. The NHC says movement should continue with some increase in forward speed Monday.

There's a high risk for excessive rainfall over parts of the Mississippi Valley as the storm moves northward.

The National Hurricane Center is also monitoring an area in the Atlantic, but it has only a 10 percent chance of development.

Rain fell intermittently in New Orleans famed French Quarter on Sunday afternoon, but the streets were almost deserted, with many businesses already boarded up due to the coronavirus.

The National Guard in Louisiana has readied dozens of high-water vehicles and rescue boats.

This morning, Cristobal does not look healthy and is now a dying tropical system that is transitioning to an extra-tropical storm system.

Meanwhile, teams of engineers are ready to assess critical infrastructure in the aftermath. Cristobal's maximum sustained winds remained at 85 km/h, and it was moving north at 8 km/h.

At around Sunday lunchtime, the storm was centred approximately 90 miles south of New Orleans.

After making landfall it has since lost much of its strength, but it is still tracking northward, which is a very rare and unique occurrence for a tropical storm.

It is forecast to move north into Arkansas and Missouri later on Monday and Tuesday before heading into Wisconsin and the western Great Lakes on Wednesday.

John Bel Edwards tweeted that President Trump had approved his request for federal assistance over the storm. Residents there have been urged to evacuate.

A similar order was issued for several Plaquemines Parish communities, including Happy Jack, Grand Bayou, Myrtle Grove, Lake Hertiage, Harlem and Monsecour.
