If you live anywhere in the 106-1 KISS-FM listening area, you were not spared the wrath of the storms that sped through the area last night. Although the Evansville area was under a tornado warning, there were no reports of a tornado touching down within the city limits. Instead we were treated to what weather experts call "straight-line winds", some in excess of 70 mph.
According to an article on the Evansville Courier & Press website, the stiff winds in addition to lightning and thunder caused approximately 17,000 Vectren customers in Mt. Vernon & Evansville to lose power.
