Severe Storm Hit Alabama on Thursday Causing Death, Injuries and Outages.
Strong storms ripping through Alabama Thursday have caused at least one death, multiple injuries, damages and widespread power outages across the state. One woman from Huntsville was sent to the hospital after she was struck by lightning in Hampton Cove in Huntsville.
Another man was killed when a tree fell on car in Lineville, police said.
Rain continued to fall in parts of south Alabama late Thursday, but the worst of the storms were moving offshore in the southwest.
Those storms cut path of damage from north to south today, with many reports of downed trees and power lines in their wake.
The National Weather Service offices across the state have gotten multiple reports of trees down, power outages and small hail throughout the day.
The weather service in Huntsville issued a storm survey report Thursday night on storms that moved through the Killingsworth Cove area in Madison County earlier in the afternoon. The weather service said those storms had winds estimated at 100 mph.
A marginal risk of severe weather will be in place for parts of the state again on Friday, June 29, 2018. Scattered rain and storms will remain in the forecast each day through the weekend.
