Flash Flooding caused by the remnants of Tropical Storm Ida left several Tri-State communities soaked.

The Monday storm left drivers in Owensboro fighting the floodwaters to get home from work.

There was significant flooding at East 22nd and New Hartford Road as well as on 25th and Frederica Street by the Owensboro Health Business Center.

In Dubois County, waves of floodwaters left streets in Dubois, Indiana unpassable.

Video from Jackson and 3rd Street shows more than a block underwater.

Not far away, the same situation at East Main Street and 4th. The Chuckles Gas Station at that corner had rushing water seep under the door. The store flooded and staff had to close for the night to clean up the muddy floors.

The store will be back open for business, Tuesday morning at 5 a.m.

Just another day in paradise; afternoon highs again topped out in the mid to low 70s across the Tri-State under a mix of sun and clouds. If you have plans out and about this evening, make sure to grab a jacket before you head out - after seeing temperatures near 64° around dinnertime, the mercury will dip to 57° by 10 o'clock before falling all the way back down into the mid to upper 40s early Wednesday morning. Sure, tomorrow morning's lows of 47° will represent our mildest start to a day since this past Friday, but it's still going to make for a cool start to our midweek nonetheless. The combination of sunshine and southerly winds however, will help drive temperatures back into the low 70s by lunchtime - if you're planning on lunching outside Wednesday, make sure not to do so in the shade. Wind gusts near 15 mph at times during our lunch hour will make for a chilly brown bag lunch outdoors.
