Friday night a fast-moving storm came through parts of the Tri-State area, tearing down trees and power lines. Leaving homes without electricity for several hours.

There were a series of weather warnings, tornados, thunderstorms and the possibility of hail.

A tornado warning in Spencer County touched down around 8 p.m.

Heavy rains and strong wind gusts up to 35 mph swept through affecting several areas, one being New Harmony Rd.

The storm caused a tree to fall on one home on Lakeview Dr., though no one was hurt it did cause roof damage.

Residents told 44 News Friday night's storm prompted a 4-hour power outage for some.

The morning after, most damages were cleared, just broken tree branches on the road.

As far as the tree that fell on one home, it's no longer there with help from CenterPoint Energy crews.

No injuries were reported from the storms and electricity was restored for most homes in the area.

Our third day in a row with very mild temperatures. Highs across the Tri-State were in the low and middle 60's. A few showers at times crossed the area. A cold front will push through the Tri-State and will cause a few strong storms, that could have strong winds and even some torrential rain. Some flash flooding is a possibility. Strong winds overnight switching from the southwest to the northwest and may gust as high as 30 mph.
