Also in Evansville, large tree branches fell on top of a car and caused damage on Saint James Boulevard.

The Newburgh Volunteer Fire Department said they responded to four calls in just over an hour during the storm. The calls ranged from transformer fires and downed power lines to trees blocking roadways.
