Debris Clean-Up Resumes After Monday’s Severe Storms

(WGGB) — Nearly one day after severe storms hit western Mass. and northern Conn., clean-up continues in some of the areas hardest hit by the wicked weather.

Crews were back out in Agawam Tuesday morning after a microburst hit the town around noon Monday. Trees and limbs came down on Hunt Street, Harvey Johnson Boulevard, and Meadow Street, crushing some cars, after two cells moved through the area.

To the south, clean-up is ongoing after an EF-1 tornado touched down near Raymond Road and Alicia Terrace in Windsor Locks, Conn. around 1:30 Monday. The twister had an estimated maximum speed of 86 miles per hour, and cut a two and a half mile path through Windsor Locks and East Windsor.

Several trees came down in Windsor Locks, some onto cars and houses. Netting over tobacco fields were blown off and strewn across Interstate 91.

The tornado came to an ended near the 200 block of Main Street in East Windsor, but not before blowing down and destroying the bubble at Sports World in East Windsor.

No injuries or deaths were reported from either storm.
