Indiana Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch was in the River City, Friday, to take part in a luncheon hosted by the Evansville Regional Economic Partnership.

It was a sold out event at the Tropicana Evansville Pavilion, with Mayor Lloyd Winnecke among the other honored guests.

During the event Lt. Gov. Crouch, who also serves as the Indiana Secretary of Agriculture, addressed the current state of farming in Southern Indiana. She also talked about the need for communities to work together and the strength of the economy in Southern Indiana.

The Evansville native was excited to be involved in an in-person event in her home city.

"I have always been so impressed with the progression of Southwest Indiana," said Lt. Gov. Crouch. "The collaboration and partnership that they exhibit here. . . It's inspiring for me to be here in such an important and special part of the state. I get as much energy from them as I hope that they get from me."

The Lt. Governor does spend her weekends in the Tri-State, traveling each week to Indianapolis to serve the state.

We're tracking more active weather that's expected to hit our area early to late afternoon. All eyes are on a cold front moving in from the northwest. It looks as though some of the storms embedded within this line of rainfall may produce both wind gusts in excess of 40 or 50 mph along with pockets of large hail. As a result, the Storm Prediction Center of America has placed the majority of the Tri-State under a "1" on the Threat index for this afternoon and early evening. Our far southwestern communities are under a Slight Risk "2" - those communities include portions of Illinois (Saline, Hamilton, Gallatin, White, Hardin Counties) and Kentucky (Union, Crittenden, Caldwell Counties).
