Severe weather causes damage in WMass

GREENFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – All severe thunderstorm warnings in western Massachusetts have been canceled or allowed to expire after another stormy summer evening.

Due to strong winds from the storm, damage has been reported in Berkshire County with trees and wires down, especially in Pittsfield. There were also scattered power outages throughout western Mass. for WMECo and National Grid customers.

A storm during the early evening in Franklin County caused some scattered damage. The National Weather Service reported large, healthy trees knocked down along Monroe River Rd. in the town of Monroe. Additional damage was reported in the town of Bernardston. The same storm that moved through Franklin County also caused damage and tornado warnings in eastern Massachusetts.

More damage reports came from Shutesbury later Monday night where large tree limbs and wires were pulled down onto Pelham Road.

The severe weather threat for the rest of the night appears low, although an occasional shower, downpour or small thunderstorm is not out of the question.
