Weather forecasters are expecting a third day of rough weather for Gulf Coast states as Tropical Storm Cindy approaches.
The storm's maximum sustained winds were 40 miles per hour as it moved to the north at around 12 miles per hour.
Flooding was also reported on Alabama's Dauphin Island. Heavy rain and gusty winds will be the biggest threats from Cindy.
NHC said it expected the storm to turn toward the north-northwest and then toward the north Wednesday night and Thursday.
The storm put millions under high alert of "life-threatening flash flooding" since Tuesday and already has claimed at least one life.
"Cindy is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 6 to 9 inches with isolated maximum amounts of 12 inches over southeastern Louisiana, southern MS, southern Alabama, and western portions of the Florida Panhandle through Thursday", the NHC said in an earlier statement.
The storm is expected to make landfall near the Louisiana-Texas border Thursday morning, but the National Weather Service says flooding is a concern Wednesday all across the Gulf Coast.

Remnants of Tropical Storm Cindy could bring two inches or more to Illinois, Kentucky and Missouri counties that stretch along the OH and Mississippi Rivers.
The weather service says there are still some questions on whether the best moisture from Cindy arrives over our area, or gets shunted off to the east. Temperatures will be a bit above normal Thursday and again on Friday, with scattered storms possible.
Tropical Storm Cindy first made its presence known over the weekend as some of these regions have experienced anywhere from four inches to eight inches of rainfall from Sunday to Wednesday.
But the heavy rains were on its east side, meaning the major rain threat - perhaps a foot or more of rain by Thursday - stretched from southeastern Louisiana to the Florida Panhandle.
The governors of Alabama and Louisiana both declared a state of emergency earlier this week due to the coming storm. The state said the Federal Emergency Management Agency was moving 125,000 meals and 200,000 liters of water into Louisiana.
A few wind gusts may get as high as 40+ miles per hour.
