Hurricane Cindy - July 5-12, 1959

A small tropical cyclone, Cindy formed offshore South Carolina, becoming a tropical storm on July 7th.
After moving northeast on previous days, Cindy turned to the west due to a developing surface high to
its north.  The system moved inland near Charleston, recurving along the fall line and exiting the coast
near Norfolk, Virginia.  Heavy rains fell near and left of its track, relieving dry conditions across the region.
