ALG Connect Weather Alert: Tropical Depression Laura

Tropical Depression Laura Moving Through the Mid-South With Gusty Winds, Flooding After Category 4 Landfall


Laura made landfall early Thursday morning and will spread threats of strong winds, flooding rain and tornadoes from the South and mid-Mississippi Valley into the Ohio and Tennessee valleys. Laura is now tracking through the mid-South as a slowly weakening system and has lost tropical characteristics.


Laura will spread heavy rain far inland through parts of the lower and middle Mississippi valleys, Ohio Valley, Tennessee Valley and the mid-Atlantic into Saturday. Parts of Mississippi, Arkansas, Alabama, Tennessee, Missouri and Kentucky: Additional 1 to 3 inches, with isolated totals of up to 5 inches. Flash flooding and river flooding are possible in these areas. Some isolated severe thunderstorms in Laura's outer rainbands are possible, some of which could spin up brief tornadoes parts of the mid-South and Tennessee Valley through Friday.


We recognize the severe impact that current conditions are having on our customers and we are committed to restoring service levels as quickly as possible. As a result of these weather issues, the ALG Client Service Team will send daily updates as we monitor the progress and track job level impact.
