HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - There have been several reports of damage across north Alabama caused by Monday evening's storms.

Lauderdale County has reported a few trees down and Lawrence County has reported minor limbs and trees down. There are reports of trees and power lines as well as porch and roof damage in Limestone County.

There was severe damage on Woodward Avenue in Muscle Shoals and well as other areas throughout the Shoals.

Damage was reported throughout several Madison and Huntsville areas, such as the Ashbury subdivision in Madison.

Morgan County has also reported several trees down on Highway 55 at Wilhite Road in the Falkville area, and a woman on Wilhite Road was hit by flying debris and transported to a hospital.

There was also a report of a tree on a home on Milligan Road, and several power outages were reported in Decatur. There were also reports of damages to homes in Athens.

There were several areas of damage reported in Cullman County including roof damage at Eva Bank, Hobby Lobby, and Vinemont Office Park where one person was injured. There are several trees down in the city of Cullman.

The threat for severe weather will continue in most areas throughout the night.

Although there were tornado threats, there is greater threat for potential widespread damaging straight line winds in excess of 60 mph. Flash Flooding will also be a big problem.

Some areas could see three inches of rain over already saturated soil. This will be a bigger problem for the Tuesday morning commute, especially in rural areas and less traveled roads.

Storms will likely continue for the morning commute in areas along and east of I-65. We will stream coverage throughout the night on Monday. You can follow that coverage online at and on our mobile news and weather apps.

You can also find our continuous coverage with our radio partners. FM Lite 96.9 WRSA, WFIX 91.3 and WNVA 105.5. AM WKAC 1080, WVSM 1500, WWIC 1050, WZYX 1440 and WFPA 1400.

Because this is an overnight event, make sure that your NOAA weather radio is on and programmed properly to receive warnings. We will be streaming coverage on and the WAFF mobile apps beginning Monday evening until the severe threat has ended Tuesday morning.

Also, make sure your mobile devices are fully charged and signed up for our text alerts. If you have our mobile apps downloaded, you will also receive alerts. It's important to have several methods to receive weather alerts in case one fails.
