GPM observes Tropical Storm Cristobal drenching Louisiana and Mississippi

GPM captured Tropical Storm Cristobal at 11:46 UTC (6:46 am CST) on June 8th, 2020. Prior to this second landfall over the Louisiana coast, Tropical Storm Cristobal had caused much damage to Campeche and Mexico on it's way to the United States. It eventually made it's second landfall over Louisiana bringing coastal storm surges with it. After Cristobal finished it's path across the United States Midwest it left behind over a foot of rain in many places.
