Happy Monday morning!
What a mean joke Mother Nature played on the tri-state over the weekend by knocking out power during the hottest days of the year! As far as the temperature goes, Meteorologist Katy Morgan is saying that they won't be easing up any time soon. Today, we can expect highs to reach the mid to upper 90s with a chance of more thunderstorms developing this afternoon. A heat advisory is also in effect for our viewing area from noon until 8 PM.
If you live or work in Highland County, listen up! The Highland County Water Company is advising its customers to boil all water before consuming it. They were one of the large companies that took a hit during the storms and a full restoration at the water pumping facility isn't expected until tomorrow.
While most of us will celebrate the 4th with cookouts and fireworks, things will be much quieter for one Indiana town. The city of Beech Grove is handing out hefty fines and criminal charges to those caught using fireworks this year. Rob Williams and Sheila Gray will have details on the fireworks ban and why it's being put into effect at 6 AM.
Continuing with local celebrities, we have Taylor Mill native Ken Strunk in the studio this morning to talk about his upcoming role in Matt Damon's "Promised Land". Tune-in at 8:45 to hear what he has to say about the new film as well as his previous shows including West Wing, NCIS and Boston Legal!
