AGAWAM, Mass. (WWLP)- Severe thunderstorms moved through western Massachusetts Sunday evening, leaving visible damage in neighborhoods and on the roadways Monday morning. The town of Agawam was one of the hardest hit communities, with reports of downed trees, power lines, and flooded streets.
On Harvey Johnson Drive, there were large limbs down on residents’ front yards, and on the parallel street that leads to Heritage Hall (a nursing and retirement home), utility crews worked throughout the night on power lines that were knocked down by a tree.
Driving down Main Street (Route 159), Bridge Street, and Maple Street, you could see the aftermath of the storm with large trees down, business signs knocked over, and roads washed out.
On Church Street, lightning had hit a tree that fell on top of a small pickup truck.
The majority of the main roads remained in good condition for the morning commuters, but wet leaves and sticks posed some hazards. Thunder and lightning could be heard off in the distance Monday morning as the potential for more strong storms rolled in.
