HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Damage was reported in several areas as a line of strong storms moved through North Alabama.

Power lines were knocked down at Whitesburg Drive and Lily Flagg in Huntsville Thursday afternoon. The lines fell on top of a car at the intersection and the driver was trapped inside. Huntsville Utilities workers helped her get out of the car.

A tree fell on a house on Valley View drive near Dell in Huntsville, causing heavy damage. The National Weather Service said they will visit the area Friday to survey the damage.

Power lines and a tree were down across Dug Hill Road in Madison County. Traffic was blocked for a short time while crews worked to clear the damage.

Flooding was reported in Hartselle, Athens, and parts of Madison as heavy rain moved through the area.

Power was knocked out in Athens for about an hour, but workers were able to restore it quickly. Power outages were also reported in South Huntsville. Utilities workers are working to fully restore power.

Minor damage and downed trees were reported on the eastern boundary of Redstone Arsenal. One building sustained minor damage, but no one was injured.
