Tropical depression Cristobal brings heavy rains and tornadoes to the U.S. Gulf Coast

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.
