Orange soil from the Mississippi Aquarium site overflowed into drainage ditches on Tuesday emptying into the Gulfport Small Craft Harbor during heavy rains from Tropical Storm Cindy. The contractor responded to the problem by digging deeper ditches on the site Wednesday to keep the water on site.
Ray Reeves recorded a waterspout that formed in Biloxi, Mississippi, on Wednesday, June 21, during a tropical storm warning for San Luis Pass, Texas to the Alabama-Florida border. Mississippi residents were warned to be cautious as Cindy makes its way through the Gulf. Several Coast cities saw heavy rain and flash flooding. Reeves took the video from Sharkheads in Biloxi.
As Tropical Storm Cindy strengthened in the Gulf of Mexico on Tuesday morning, a waterspout formed off St. George Island, Florida. Emergency officials did not report any serious injuries or significant property damage as the storm continued to travel through the Florida Panhandle.
