The Indiana State Department of Health said Monday that another 730 new positive cases of COVID-19 had been identified throughout the Hoosier State.

ISDH says 648,733 total Indiana residents have now tested positive for the virus to date.

Five new COVID-19 deaths were also reported throughout the state on Monday by ISDH.

That brought the total number of COVID-19 deaths in the state to date to 12,622, ISDH said.

While no new COVID-19 deaths were reported in the southwest area of the state on Monday, ISDH said new positive cases of the virus had been identified in five of our local counties.

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.
