Authorities in Muhlenberg County are reminding area residents to use reputable, licensed contractors for home improvement projects after they say a scammer falsely offering services made off with thousands of dollars.

According to the Muhlenberg County Sheriff's Office, 34-year-old Michael T. McKiernan of Logan County has been falsely offering sales and installation of heating and air conditioning equipment.

The sheriff's office says there are currently two separate cases involving McKiernan in Muhlenberg County that have resulted in a loss of over $6,000 from local residents.

MCSO says McKiernan has active arrest warrants from Muhlenberg County and other surrounding counties.

Anyone with information on McKiernan's whereabouts is being asked to contact the sheriff's office at 270-338-3345 or Muhlenberg County Central Dispatch at 270-338-2000.

Today's high of 93° not only marks our hottest recorded temperature of the year, but our highest since the afternoon of August 10th of 2020! Despite the oppressive heat, the day itself wasn't necessarily unpleasant; while peak temperatures climbed abnormally high for this time of the year, a weak cold front passing to our south ushered in a breezy northerly wind flow that helped take the edge off that summer-like heat across the Tri-State earlier this afternoon. The evening ahead will remain quite pleasant, albeit mild - expect the mercury to dip from 87° to 75° between dinnertime and 10PM. Between the northerly winds and clear conditions overnight, morning low temperatures will trend toward the upper 50s and low 60s early Tuesday; we'll fall to 60° even in Evansville.
