The National Weather Service says high winds that caused damage in Agawam in western Massachusetts were from a microburst, not a tornado.
Damaging winds flattened trees and utility wires and knocked out power in parts of northern New England on Sunday, flights were delayed in New York City, flash flooding hit central Massachusetts and there were reports of a tornado in South Carolina as the East Coast weathered the remnants of violent storms that claimed 13 lives in Oklahoma.
Hit play to see and hear the explosive orgy of light and sound that was the 2012 Boston fireworks finale.
Thunderstorms flared up across eastern Massachusetts on Tuesday, even spawning a funnel cloud on Cape Cod.
Evening and overnight severe thunderstorms are being forecasted for the majority of Massachusetts.
Strong storms tore through the area Saturday morning, leaving behind significant damage in some areas.
The best chance for any severe storms in our vicinity would be in western New England – places like the Berkshires, Vermont and Connecticut. But tornadoes are very unlikely.
