NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Rain bands reeling away from Tropical Depression Cindy spread drenching rains from the Southeast to the Midwest, triggering flash flood warnings over several states including West Virginia, whose residents on Friday marked the anniversary of deadly floods last June.

The National Weather Service in Paducah has issued a flash flood watch for portions of southern IL, southwest in, western Kentucky, and southeast Missouri, from 1 pm this afternoon through Friday evening. "Rain totals still in the 2-4" range with locally higher amounts.

If you know of any closed roads or flash flooding, give Eagle Country 99.3 a call at 812-537-9724. Showers and storms throughout the evening commute for most of Central Indiana.

Heavy rainfall associated with remnants of the tropical storm caused scattered street flooding across central and southern IN on Friday.

Periods of heavy rain and thunderstorms will cross the area over the next 24 hours.

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

Take all warnings seriously - Take flood warnings seriously, and even flash flood warnings more seriously. Cindy also caused widespread coastal highway and several short-lived tornadoes.

On Friday, forecasters were trying to verify exactly how many tornadoes touched down in Alabama during Cindy's passage.

Crews in Memphis cleared storm drains in advance to help prevent street flooding before the storm arrived.

The National Weather Service said the remnants may also produce tornadoes.

Those rains come on top of heavy rains that fell earlier Friday, saturating the soil and making flooding more likely.
