Tri-State no longer under Severe Thunderstorm Warning or Flash Flood Watch

CINCINNATI -- A Severe Thunderstorm Warning and a Flash Flood Watch have expired in the Tri-State.

More than 3,000 people were without power Thursday evening, but that number decreased to fewer than 200 by 10 p.m.

The outages affected folks in Milford, where downed power lines caused a tree to fall on Cleveland Avenue near Mill Street.

Over in Terrace Park, a home on Yale Avenue was struck by lightning during Thursday's storms, but Hamilton County dispatchers said no one was injured.

A driver lost control on I-71 near Fort Washington when rain poured down. The driver nearly smashed into a police car. The driver and the officer were not hurt, and continued on their way.

Some of the Tri-State was threatened by pouring rain and localized flooding.

Rain showers and scattered thunderstorms could pop at any time with the greater chance tonight. While severe storms are not expected to be widespread there is the threat of gusty winds, heavy downpours and small hail if you experience a storm.

Evening storms will taper overnight but it will remain warm and very muggy. Temperatures will hover in the 80s before falling to the lower 70s by daybreak.
