Heavy rain had the potential of overflowing poor drainage

LENOX, Mass. (WWLP) – In the video above, 22News was in the Berkshire County town of Lenox when the rain started to fall. People attending a concert were unable to sit outside on the lawn due to the amount of rain.

The National Weather Service issued a Flood Advisory for Berkshire and Franklin counties, Tuesday night, as storms brought heavy rain and strong winds. Both advisories expire at 10:30 p.m. Tuesday.

The heavy rain has the potential of causing minor urban and small stream flooding, and overflowing poor drainage, which is why the advisory was issued.
