Parts of the U.S. Gulf Coast and the South were devastated over the weekend.
Tropical depression Cristobal devastated parts of the U.S. Gulf Coast over the weekend — particularly Louisiana — where a storm surge breached a levee at St. Bernard parish causing flooding.
About 10,000 people were urged to evacuate in grand isle, Lafourche Parish and Terrebonne parish – with Governor John Bel Edwards declaring a state of emergency in Louisiana.
So far, there were no reports of storm-related injuries.
While Cristobal did not directly hit central Florida, it brought about heavy rain, strong winds and even a tornado.
The SF-1 tornado touched down in orange county Saturday evening, displacing at least 40 people and damaging properties worth almost 1 million u-s dollars.
