Damaging storms swept through the City of Evansville on Thursday. 

These images show tree limbs brought down on Petersburg Road near Highway 41, which caused streetlights to go out in the area. CenterPoint Energy was on the scene, as was the Indiana State Police to direct traffic through the intersection.

Above: a tree brought down at Parkside Drive and Madison Avenue in Evansville, near Akin Park.

Thursday's storms also brought down this large tree on Kerth Avenue, causing it to fall straight into the roadway, as seen below:

Over near the intersection of Parkside Drive and Madison Avenue, another large tree was brought down. That's just northeast of Akin Park.

As of 4:30 p.m. in the Evansville Area, CenterPoint was reporting 2,200 customers affected by power outages in 45 locations around the city.

The damage caused in Evansville on Thursday was the product of a storm where winds reached estimated speeds of 60 miles per hour. That storm has since dissipated over Warrick County.

Scattered rainfall continues to affect portions of the Tri-State and it seems as though it will continue to do so through the remainder of the evening and overnight. After reaching an afternoon high near 80° earlier on, expect temperatures to gradually fall toward 70° by dinnertime before dwindling into the mid 60s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will dive all the way back down into the upper 50s by the predawn hours Wednesday; we'll fall to 58° in Evansville. The cold front and associated low responsible for all of our rain chances both today and tonight is expected to stall stall Wednesday, prolonging our isolated rain chances tomorrow, especcially for those of us north and east of Evasnville.
