RED BAY, Ala. (AP) - Scattered damage is being reported from strong storms that moved across Alabama overnight.

The National Weather Service says high winds tore the roofs off two homes in the northwest Alabama town of Red Bay, and trees are down on several streets. One fell on to a mobile home.

Authorities say strong winds also left scattered damage around Florence, Decatur and Marshall County.

No injuries are reported, but damage to utility lines left power outages in some areas.

The storms moved through the state ahead of what forecasters say will be the coolest weather so far this season. Temperatures are predicted in the low 40s overnight with highs in the 60s in central Alabama on Saturday.
