Intense rainfall rates combined with previous rainfall from an early morning MCS, caused isolated flash flooding to occur in portions of downtown Huntsville. Intense and frequent lightning helped cause extensive power outages in Madison and eastern Lauderdale counties. At one point, about 2,500 homes and businesses had power outages.
Event Narrative Trees and power lines were blown down in Arab, especially on Brindley Mountain.
