UPDATE: Huntsville Utilities working to restore scattered power outages in Madison County
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — A power outage in Northeast Huntsville stretches from I-565 east to Bankhead Pkwy / Toll Gate Rd and from Oakwood Avenue south to Wells Avenue.
Service was interrupted in Northeast Huntsville when high winds blew a tree into service lines near the intersection of Clinton Avenue and Grayson Street. Service was restored to that area at approximately 12:45 a.m.
Utility crews also worked two large outages in the Harvest-Monrovia area. The first outage occurred just after midnight when lightning damaged equipment near the substation serving that area. A second outage occurred in the same area at 2:55 a.m. when a tree fell into service lines along Nance Road just north of Highway 72. Both outages have been restored in that area.
At this time, crews are working to restore service to a number of isolated outages scattered across Madison County. Huntsville Utilities estimates 35 to 40 households are without power at this time. Crews will continue working through the morning hours until all power is restored.
