Alabama Power Co. says about 20,100 homes and businesses lost electricity in central and western Alabama as severe weather including tornadoes stuck Monday.

Huntsville Utilities says about 4,200 homes and businesses were in the dark to the north in the Tennessee Valley. Falling trees pulled down electrical lines in areas including Limestone County, where damage was worst and at least two people died.

Outages could increase overnight since storms had yet to reach the most populated areas of the state.

Forecasters predict multiple round of severe storms and as much as 5 inches of rain through Wednesday.
