MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Powerful thunderstorms that moved across Alabama have left more flooding and toppled trees across the state.

Forecasters at the National Weather Service said rains of around 1 inch fell within 30 minutes during Tuesday's storms in the Montgomery area. That led to at least one location -- East Ogden Avenue and Norman Bridge Road -- impassable as water flowed across the road.

The weather service also received reports of several trees down and some minor structural damage in the Cloverdale community of Montgomery.

Authorities said winds from the storms were estimated at 45 mph to 65 mph in the Montgomery area.

WBRC-TV reports that soggy soil may be partly to blame for a tree falling onto power lines in Homewood. There were also reports of trees down in the Tuscaloosa area.
