Starting Wednesday, Oct. 7, Southern Illinois communities will have the ability to use ride-sharing App Uber.

Over 39 counties including Wayne, Wabash, Edwards, and White will have the app available throughout the entire state.

The expansion comes as Uber tries to adapt its policies to help drivers and riders stay safe during the pandemic.

The company did make a $50 million dollar commitment to providing personal protective equipment, as well as a partnership with Clorox to distribute wipes to drivers across the country.

It was another cool, though overall pleasant day across the Tri-State - after only seeing temperatures dive as low as 22° early this morning, peak temperatures ended up climbing a few degrees higher than Thursday's; that being said, Evansville’s high temperature of 27° Was still 15° below average for this time of the year. As for the evening ahead, temperatures will gradually fall for 23° around dinner time back down to 19° by10 PM. A weak northerly wind flow most of the night paired with our crystal clear skies will cause temperatures to of fall back down into the mid to low teens once again - Evansville's anticipated low temperature of 12° will mark or coolest since the morning of January 7th.
