Storms Knock Out Power, Drench Tri-State


CenterPoint crews have reduced the number of outages in southwest Indiana to less than 100

Wednesday night’s severe storms brought high winds, brilliant lightning, hail and heavy rain to the Tri-State. WNIN’s John Gibson has a recap:

A huge shelf cloud led the strongest storms into the Evansville area at about 9:00 Wednesday night.

The storms knocked downed tree limbs and power lines, leaving hundreds without electricity.

By midday Thursday CenterPoint Energy had reduced the number of customers without power to less than 100.

The National Weather Service measured about 1.5 inches of rain at Evansville Regional Airport.

There were no reports of tornadoes in the Evansville area.

A deadly twister did hit middle Tennessee.

The severe weather threat has moved out of the region with sunny and cooler conditions expected this weekend.
