LATEST: Less than 268,000 people across Alabama are without power as of 7 a.m. Friday, according to PowerOutage.us.

Though the numbers are falling, part of the reason the outages remain high is the amount of trees and power lines down across the state.

According to the National Weather Service Alabama had wind speeds anywhere from 12 miles per hour to 62 miles per hour.

Zeta has caused massive power outages across Alabama overnight as the storm moved through the state.
