Woman killed in home invasion identified

Scattered showers follow rowdy weather


Expect scattered showers throughout the evening in the wake of a rough afternoon weather system that dumped heavy rain, hail and lightning in the region.

The front that triggered the earlier storms has pushed south. The flow, about 5,000 feet above the ground to our west in Illinois and Indiana, remains from the southwest. The front has allowed some showers and thunderstorms to redevelop to the west and they will move in for the overnight, said Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Jamie Simpson.

The front will bring more scattered rain with some thunder and lightning overnight. Simpson said he does not expect severe storms, but a few far south could have produce small hail. The showers should be gone by sunrise, but a stray shower could start the day in some locations.

The thunderstorm watch issued late Tuesday afternoon for Butler, Champaign, Clark, Clinton, Greene, Miami, Montgomery, Preble and Warren counties has been canceled by the National Weather Service.

At 7 p.m., more than 880 Dayton Power & Light customers in the region were without power and lightning was to blame, said

Judi Blair, DP&L director of operations. Crews were held over in anticipation of the bad weather and are working into the night to restore electric service, she said.

According to the most recent DP&L power outage report:

Montgomery 21

Greene 3

Preble 3

Logan 1

Hail and lightning in Greene County and flooding near the Dayton Mall were some of the issues the weather system caused Tuesday afternoon.

*5:30 p.m., nickel, quarter, half-dollar and ping pong sized hail was reported in Warren and Butler counties.

*4:59 p.m., quarter-size hail was spotted in Xenia.

*4:45 p.m., an iWitness7 reporter in Greene County reported dime-size hail near Indian Ripple Road.

*4:44 p.m., The weather service reported marble-sized hail in Beavercreek, West Carrollton and Centerville.

*4:39 p.m., Breaking New Team reporter Mandy Gambrell said the road near the Dayton Mall was flooded and driving rain was breaking off concrete pieces from the driveways of several businesses. There were giant puddles in front of businesses.

*4:30 p.m., an iWitness7 reporter said hail and heavy rain was falling and there was some flash flooding on roads.
