Huntsville crews continue to assess damage and clear debris following strong storms

HUNTSVILLE – Huntsville’s Public Works and Landscape Management departments and first responders are continuing to assess storm damage and dangerous conditions following a severe weather event.

Huntsville Police are asking all drivers to avoid areas affected by the storms as there are still trees and power lines down in those areas. After a round of storms Thursday morning, water is also standing on roads throughout the City, which could make for dangerous conditions.

Most of the damage is confined to downtown Huntsville and the Five Points, Blossomwood and Old Town neighborhoods, including Clinton and Hermitage avenues and California Street. Trees are down in North Huntsville in the areas of Oakwood Avenue and Pulaski Pike. Damage is also being reported in Hampton Cove.

Roads inside Maple Hill Cemetery are currently impassable. Gates will be closed for the remainder of the day while staff assess and clean up debris.

According to Huntsville Utilities, there are more than 4,7000 customers without power as of 9 a.m. Mayor Tommy Battle urged patience as crews continue to assess damage and respond to calls for service.

“These storms hit us hard, but our crews are out in the community working to remove debris and get us going again,” Mayor Battle said. “We ask that everyone stay out of areas affected by storms so our first responders can work safely and efficiently.”

Huntsville Police also asks that residents do not call 911 unless there is a true emergency. Damage to City streets or public property can be reported through Huntsville Connect.
