(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – A line of storms did some damage across the tri-state Monday morning, and the region may not be out of the woods yet.

The storms packed a triple punch of rain, lightning, and wind. The downpours caused ponding on many roadways. Motorists reported hydroplaning on U.S. 50 at the bottom of Trester Hill in Aurora.

Frequent flashes of lightning accompanied the storms. A home in Florence was struck by lightning, creating a fire in the attic.

Strong winds uprooted or blew down large trees in Union and Florence.

The National Weather Service says that a chance of strong storms remains Monday afternoon and this evening with localized flooding, hail, or damaging winds possible. Many Monday evening outdoor events and school sports have already been cancelled.

Showers and thunderstorms are forecasted to develop again on Tuesday.
