MADISON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -
Multiple areas have reported power outages in the wake of Monday's severe weather.
Huntsville Utilities reported Tuesday morning that fewer than 500 customers, both residential and commercial, are without power across northern Madison County.
The majority of customers, they said, are in and around the Hazel Green area.
Storms moving through North Alabama produced scattered damage to the electrical distribution system, officials said, including at least 15 broken utility poles that had to be replaced, trees downing power lines, and lines on the ground.
Residents are advised to stay clear of any downed power lines and avoid trying to remove or clear debris across power lines.
The number to call to report outages or damage is 256-535-4448. Crews are expecting to have power restored to everyone by noon, except for those structures that sustained physical damage and need repair.
Athens Utilities said their crews have worked through the night, but an estimated 8,500 are still without power Tuesday morning.
Crews will be evaluating damage and making repairs, but authorities said it will take longer to restore power to areas where the transmission poles are down.
