MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Numerous viewers called the WSFA 12 News room with wide scattered reports of downed trees, power outages and signs down during Wednesday's severe weather

The Montgomery County EMA says it activated its 311 system for none-life threatening storm issues. EMA Director Steve Jones confirms trees and power lines down in the Air Base Boulevard area, the Cloverdale area and Sunshine Village in the Wares Ferry Road and Lagoon Park area.

WSFA 12 News reporters on the scene at Sunshine Village trailer park say there are no injuries to report, but approximately nine trailers were damaged. Nearly 30 firefighters were on the scene.

The roof was peeled off Adams Motorsports building on the Northern Blvd. but no injuries were reported.

The Montgomery Police Department is encouraging motorists to exercise extreme caution in areas left without electrical power and traffic signals as a result of the storm that passed through the city earlier today. These include:

Ann Street; the intersections of Arba and Perry, Arba and Lawrence, Arba and Hull, Arba and McDonough, Hyundai and Court; and the following areas, all of which have reported outages: Carter Hill Road, Old Cloverdale, Coliseum Boulevard, Perry Hill Road, Holt Street and Lamar Road.

Alabama Power reported more than 16,700 customers in the Montgomery area without service at its peak, but the number has dropped to around 10,000 by 2:00pm.

Montgomery County Commissioner Reed Ingram said in the county there is "minimal damage" and reported trees down near Mt. Zion Road. He added that all county roads remain open.

If you must be outside, be very vigilant of downed power lines. DO NOT cross them or approach them regardless of whether or not they're sparking. Lines may be live regardless of not sparking.
