Parts of the US South are affected by overnight storms

A series of severe storms ravaged homes, knocked out power, and downed trees in southern United States areas late Saturday night into Sunday morning.

After power lines fell and homes were damaged, authorities closed roads in Hazel Green. Madison County Sheriff’s Office shared photos online, including one showing a snapped power line.

Local news outlets reported that Hazel Green’s businesses were also affected by the weather, including a Walmart. The community is approximately 15 miles north Huntsville.

The same system also brought down trees in Triana, a nearby town located approximately 20 miles southwest from Huntsville. WAFF-TV’s Mary Caudle reported that around 280 people sought refuge in a storm shelter Saturday night.

The storms were triggered by a system that struck earlier Saturday, bringing a possible tornado and flooding to parts Kentucky.
