During the storm last night, the Birmingham area and surrounding counties experienced wind gusts between 30 and 40 m.p.h. As a result, there have been reports of trees down in the road and on houses.

Some roads have been closed at this time as a result of downed trees and power lines.

On Facebook, the Vestavia Hills Fire Department stated they have been to 25 tree calls in the past 12 hours.

Use caution heading out to church this morning. The heavy rains and strong winds have caused a large number of trees to fall all around the city. We are on our 25th tree call in the last 12 hours.
