Madison was spared brunt of storm damage, but not unscathed

MADISON – Madison was spared the brunt of Saturday’s storm damage, but did not come out unscathed.

According to city officials the storm left a few trees and debris in some of the roadways, downed power lines resulting in power outages.

Throughout the county, about 11,000 Huntsville Utility customers were affected. By Sunday night, the last remaining spots without power were restored.

“Crews worked around the clock to restore service to all affected customers,” a spokesperson with Huntsville Utilities said. “The fast-moving storm system left significant damage, debris, downed power lines and utility poles scattered across Madison County.”

In Madison, there were a few reports of downed trees and wind damaging homes. Heritage Elementary School also received some minor damage.

Throughout the evening Saturday, motorists were encouraged to stay off the roadways while downed trees and lines were cleared.

The roadway on Brownsferry Road, between Woodlawn Drive and Mose Chapel Road, remained closed most of Sunday while crews worked to repair down power lines. It was back open later that evening.

Madison Police and Public Works reported Monday that all of the city’s roadways were clear to begin the new week.

“Thanks as always to Public Works, Madison Police and Madison Fire for all of their work,” Madison Mayor Paul Finley said. “And thanks to Engineering for all of their work prior to the storm. For the amount of rain we had, we experienced minimal flooding.”
