HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – Huntsville Utilities crews worked from late Thursday afternoon into the evening and overnight hours restoring power in three parts of the city.

As of 6 a.m. Friday crews were working on power at one residence and a church, both in the Dug Hill area. All substations are up and online, said Joe Gehrdes, spokesperson for Huntsville Utilities.

Late Thursday around 9:30 p.m. about 250 customers were still without power, primarily in the Byrd Spring and Dug Hill areas.  Crews continued to work through the night to restore service.

Earlier Thursday, power was also out in south Huntsville along Memorial Parkway and in portions of Jones Valley.

There were also more than 100 customers who lost power in Limestone County late Thursday afternoon.  Athens Utilities restored service a short time later.
