Viewers Report Sandstorm in Northampton

SS1NORTHAMPTON, Mass (WGGB) – Just how dry are the conditions out there? Yesterday parts of Western Mass were placed under a red flag warning, meaning conditions were prime for brush fires. Today, several ABC40 viewers are reporting a sand storm in Northampton.

According to Laura Stopa, who submitted several pictures: “There’s a pretty large sandstorm going on near the Calvin Coolidge Bridge and Northampton airport in Hadley/Northampton area. The wind is pretty crazy and it pulling dust from the farmland and sweeping it over the fields and river.”
