BOSTON (CBS) – Areas hit by the spring tornadoes are cleaning up from the October snowstorm.

In Westfield, 90 percent of people lost power and Captain William McCabe with Westfield Police says this storm is worse than anything he’s seen, and he’s seen some bad stuff.

“There is a lot of damage here, it was infinitely worse than the tornado or the hurricane,” says McCabe. “They don’t even compare, they’re not even in the same ballpark.

Monson Selectman Dr. Richard Smith echoed McCabe’s assessment.

Smith says in terms of damage to trees and power outages, this snowstorm was worse than the tornadoes a few months back.

He says it will likely be four days before all power is restored.
