Huntsville Utilities: Approximately 500 Customers in Madison County Still Without Power

Tuesday 9:50 a.m. – Huntsville Utilities Operations Officials estimate fewer than 500 customers remain without power at this time in Madison County, primarily in and around the Hazel Green community, with some isolated smaller outages scattered across Madison County and Huntsville.

Storms moving through Madison County yesterday afternoon and evening produced significant damage to the electrical distribution system, including trees across power lines, power lines on the ground, and at least 15 broken utility poles that required replacement. At the peak of the storms, around 4,500 HU customers were without power.

While crews continue working to repair damage, residents are advised to stay clear of any downed power lines and not to try removing any limbs or debris across power lines. Please call 256-53-LIGHT (5-4448) to report any outages or damage. Crews estimate having power restored to all customers by noon today, with the exception of structures that suffered physical damage and are in need of repair. Crews will restore service as quickly and safely as possible.
