Heavy rains are expected to push river and lake levels higher over the next few days as remnants of the one-time tropical storm cross Tennessee and Kentucky and take aim at West Virginia.

Rain mixed with clouds and sunshine across the region.

Debris covers State Highway 87 after Tropical Storm Cindy made landfall earlier Thursday, June 22, 2017 on the Bolivar Peninsula in Texas. Rain bands spinning off of Tropical Depression Cindy spread drenching rains across the Southeast and into the Midwest on Friday, triggering scattered flash flood warnings in several states including West Virginia, whose residents are still recovering from deadly floods one year ago.

"I had heard Tropical Storm Cindy mentioned", Clewley said. Last June, torrential rains in West Virginia claimed 23 lives and memories of that disaster are still vivid.

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries says two boat launches at Pointe-aux-Chenes (point oh SHEN) Wildlife Management Area near Houma (HOH-much) are closed because of flooding.

The Tennessee Emergency Management Agency is staffing its operations center in Nashville on Friday and Saturday to coordinate any requests for assistance.

As a slow-moving tropical storm that formed Tuesday in the Gulf, Cindy was blamed for one death.

At this point, it's hard to determine how much, if any, of Cindy's remnants will factor into tri-state weather this weekend, but it appears some rain connected to the tropical storm will soak much of the tri-state region through the first part of the day Friday. People reported damage throughout the area, including in McAdory, Fairfield and Ensley.

Crews in Memphis, Tenn., worked Thursday to clear storm drains to help prevent street flooding.

National Weather Service meteorologist Craig Evanego said around an inch of rain is likely in Lancaster County, with some locally higher amounts.
