A Dubois County city is getting back to normal after a week of reduced natural gas usage.

On Monday, city officials in Huntingburg, Indiana, said area residents could return to their normal usage.

This comes after Huntingburg Mayor Steve Schwingehamer's Feb. 16 request of all residential, commercial, and industrial entities to reduce thermostats to 68 degrees and avoid the use of large natural gas-consuming equipment.

Similarly, Mayor Dean Vonderheide in nearby Jasper, Indiana, called for the same actions from residents and businesses - though Jasper's natural gas supply became stable on Friday, Feb. 19 - several days earlier than Huntingburg's.

The cold front has come and gone and with it our threat for Severe Weather. However, scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect portions of the Tri-State through the remainder of the evening ahead. In fact, there is a possibility that some of the thunderstorms we see between now and 9PM or so could produce small hail and wind gusts in excess of 40 mph. Anyone planning on attending a football game this evening should make sure an umbrella or poncho is on hand to keep you dry and should anticipate at least some rain delays to occur. The rain should finally exit east of the Tri-State between 10PM and 12AM; it's around that time that wind speeds will again pick up some steam - our northwesterly winds are expected to gust as high as 35 mph at times overnight.
