Damage at Ala. state park called extensive

GUNTERSVILLE, AL (AP) - Alabama's director of state parks says damage at Lake Guntersville State Park from last week's storms can be compared with the devastation from a hurricane along the Alabama coast.

Parks director Mark Easterwood says assessments are still in progress and the total damage remains unknown. He says the number of trees blown down is too many to count.

Easterwood says the greatest damage to trees in developed areas of the park is in the campground and cabin area.

He says all of the buildings are damaged. He's unsure how much damage was done to electrical lines, and says water and sewer systems are damaged.

Insurance adjusters were at the park Wednesday.
