The remnants of tropical storm Cristobal are moving deep into the continental United States on Monday. The storm reached the coast on Sunday, causing flooding of coastal areas for 290 km in the States of Louisiana and Mississippi.
When it hit Louisiana, the storm brought torrential rains and winds with a maximum speed of 85 km/h. In some areas of Mississippi, flooding occurred. Florida also felt the effects of the storm.
In the city of Kiln in Mississippi, rain and storm surge caused water levels to rise sharply in just a few hours, flooding streets and some homes. In the vicinity of New Orleans, flooding was even observed on Sunday.
Meteorologists in Florida report that the storm on Saturday caused a tornado in the vicinity of Orlando, resulting in damage to several homes and trees collapsed. No injuries were reported.
Now “Cristobal,” having weakened to a category of a tropical depression, is moving North-Northwest at a speed of 16 km/h. Flooding is expected to continue in the Northern part of the Gulf Coast on Monday.
Meteorologists predict that the storm will move toward the Midwest over the next few days, bringing torrential rains and flooding.
