CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – Thunderstorms and heavy rain passed through several parts of western Massachusetts, Tuesday night, leaving behind minor storm damage.
Franklin and Hampden counties were impacted the most by Tuesday’s storm. Flashes of lightning could be seen from Interstate 391 South in Chicopee.
Several storms popped up throughout the early evening, in several different parts of central and southwestern Hampden County. The National Weather Service issued a small stream Flood Warning for parts of Hampden County, but that expired around 9:00 p.m.
Then, in Franklin County, a viewer sent 22News a photo through our report-it feature of a downed tree in Deerfield. The massive tree came down Tuesday afternoon during a storm, blocking Route 5 & 10. Power lines were also brought down. Crews were able to move the tree and the road was reopened just after 5:00 p.m.
