8:37 p.m. UPDATE: Huntsville Utilities reports power has been restored to all but 10-20 customers on Honea Lane. The customers still without power live on Honea between Low Gap and Piney Woods Road and will remain without power until the 2 poles that were broken are fixed.

A tree fell and tore down 6 spans of 477 wire and broke 2 poles. Crews are currently on site now clearing up the tree, changing out the poles, and working hard to restore power. It could still be several more hours before those 10-20 customers have power restored.

From earlier:

Huntsville Utilities Electric Operations is responding to a power outage in Owens Cross Roads from Keel Mountain south to Main Drive and from Highway 431 South east to the Jackson County line, according to a spokesperson.

More than 1,000 customers could be impacted by outages.

Use caution if in the area.
