MADISON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -
Power outages were still affecting hundreds of people in Madison County Sunday morning.
Huntsville Utilities said Saturday's severe weather, which
included high winds and frequent lightning, interrupted power to about 10,000
people. They said power was restored to the large outage areas by midnight,
leaving only the areas in the vicinity of the damage.
About 300 people were still without power at 5 a.m. Sunday, according to Huntsville Utilities. Authorities said these outage areas are scattered across the county,
including parts of Harvest-Monrovia, Toney, Madison, Huntsville, Gurley, Owens
Cross Roads and New Hope. Utility crews are still working on these outages.
Around 1 a.m., Madison County Sheriff's Office said the area of Cedar
Point Road and Carpenter Drive in New Hope was closed down because power lines
were in the roadway.
