The community is coming together to support a local gymnast after she suffered a serious neck injury during practice recently.

Jackie Biehler, a Level 8 Gymnast at The Zone Athletics Center in Evansville, fell during a recent practice and suffered a severe neck injury, according to The Zone.

After that accident, Biehler was flown to Norton's Children's Hospital in Louisville where she has since undergone two surgeries.

A Venmo account has since been set up to help Biehler's family with immediate expenses while she's in the hospital.

Additionally, two prayer circles will be held for Biehler on Tuesday, July 13, outside the Zone Athletics Center at 2800 Lynch Road. Those prayer circles will each take place at 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, with all members of the community invited to attend.

The Zone says that anyone who would like to donate to Biehler's recovery expenses can use the Venmo account @Megan-Biehler-1.

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.
