MADISON COUNTY, Ala. – Power is restored to three areas of Madison County impacted by outages on Thursday.

One outage was in northwest Huntsville from Winchester Road south to Mastin Lake Road and from Blue Spring Road east to Memorial Parkway.  A Huntsville Utilities spokesperson said service was interrupted by an insulator that was presumably damaged during a storm in the area at the time of the outage. Service was restored just before 2:00PM.

Another outage affected the north Huntsville/Meridianville area from Pulaski Pike east to Highway 231/431 and between Patterson Lane and Bob Wade Lane, which was caused by a tree falling into power lines near the Liberty Hill substation during the stormy weather. Repairs were made and service was restored at approximately 1:50PM.

Some areas of Gurley also lost power earlier in the day, including near Madison County High School.  This was due to a vehicle hitting a utility pole, damaging service lines along Highway 72 near MCHS. That outage is fixed too.
