Map: Track Tropical Depression Cristobal on its way through the U.S.

This storm is particularly rainy, and its effects will be felt far from the storm's center.

Tropical Storm Cristobal is now a tropical depression.

The rain-heavy storm, which has already brought flooding to Mexico and portions of Central America, gained strength as it crossed the Gulf of Mexico and has made landfall in Louisiana. Louisiana declared a state of emergency in advance of the storm's arrival, and the storm has lost strength since it made landfall.
