We've been asking for rain for what seems like months now and Mother Nature definitely did more than her fair share!
High winds, massive downpours and tons of lightening caused issues all over the tri-state and according to Meteorologist Katy Morgan, it's time for round two.
We can expect another hot, muggy afternoon with highs in the low 90s and partly to mostly cloudy skies.The chance for severe weather will be hanging out today and could be very similar to those that ripped through the area yesterday.
Speaking of the storm damage, I want to give a huge thank you to all of our awesome viewers for sending in your pics for us to share - you all rock! Dan Wells will also be live this morning with a better look at the leftovers from yesterday's chaos.
While most of us dealt with fallen trees and power outages, some folks in a Butler County condo complex experienced a little more. Three condos in Liberty Township were struck by lightening, one of them catching the brunt of the damage. Although some of the residents were home at the time, thankfully no one was hurt.
George Zimmerman has been in the spotlight since February after the controversial killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

Tune-in at 6 AM for clips of his one-on-one interview with FOX News' Sean Hannity.
50 Shades of Grey is a hot commodity in the bookstores right now, but the steamy content seems to be causing an inferiority complex in men. The complex has escalated so much that a Cleveland radio show has been encouraging men to burn copies of the book! Rob Williams and Sheila Gray have more on the "logic" behind the book burn along with the footage at 6:30.
