NOTASULGA, Ala. (AP) - The National Weather Service is sending out teams to assess the damage left by strong storms that hit Alabama.


Forecasters say experts will be spread out from northwest Alabama to east Alabama on Friday trying to determine the extent of the damage and what type of weather systems left the wreckage.


The assessment will include parts of Macon and Lee counties, where strong storms damaged homes and knocked down trees in Notasulga after dark while a tornado warning was in effect Thursday night.


No injuries are being reported, but damage is being reported in at least a half-dozen counties.


The storms left thousands of people without electricity, but officials say most service already has been restored.
