TENNESSEE VALLEY (WHNT) – There are several reports of damage from the line of severe storms that moved through north Alabama on Monday.  The storms are now moving into Georgia.

The National Weather Service issued a tornado warning for DeKalb County and part of Jackson County on Monday afternoon, but that warning has now expired.

A number of trees are down in several areas, and many of you reported seeing large hail as the storms moved through.  Here are some of the damage reports from various counties so far:

Colbert County
Tree fell on a house on Blue Road in Littleville. No one was hurt.

DeKalb County
There is damage in Kilpatrick and on County Road 579 in Sylvania. Reports of damage to a mobile home park are also coming in.  Five people have been injured.  This seems to be the hardest hit community, from initial reports.
Also, in the Skirum community – power lines, trees down and quarter-sized hail.
Pictures of damage to the Collinsville High School field house are in our photo gallery.  A portable classroom trailer was also damaged.  No injures are reported there.

Franklin County
Trees reported down in several areas; damage to barn in Spruce Pine community.

Lawrence County
Trees and power lines down in several areas.  Debris on various roads.
Tree reported down on a mobile home in Town Creek.  A woman was home, but was not hurt.  That home was also apparently damaged by lightning.

Limestone County
Athens Utilities is working to restore power to about 286 customers.  There are about 13 different outages.

Madison County
Power outages in Harvest/Monrovia area, from Capshaw Road to just north of Nick Davis, and between Old Railroad Bed Road and Jeff Road.  Huntsville Utilities crews are working in the area to restore power.
Large tree ripped down some power lines in Maple Road in Madison.
Also, the Madison County Sheriff’s Office said Verizon cell service was down in the northern part of the county.

Marshall County
Guntersville Police Chief says trees are down in several areas.
Also, several stores were damaged on Highway 431.
We are also checking on reports of damage in Beulah, southeast of Albertville.

We’re working to get more specific details from each of these areas and more.  We’ll continue to update WHNT.com with more specific details.  If you have damage in your area, please send an email to news@whnt.com.
