    Severe thunderstorms on Friday night left serious damage across the region, and cleanup is now underway in many area communities.

    Warnings were, at times, in effect in all six New England states - some of them until well after midnight.

    The National Weather Service reported downed trees and wires across New England.

    Trees fell on houses in Tolland, Connecticut, and in the Massachusetts communities of Hatfield, Westborough, Stoughton, Easton, Tolland and Plymouth. A billboard was also reportedly blown over in Westborough.

    The Westborough Fire Department said it has responded to over 80 calls for service on Friday night and Saturday morning. No injuries were reported.

    There were multiple reports of trees down in parts of New Hampshire and southern Maine. Dime-sized hail was also reported down in Conway, New Hampshire.

    Several communities in Massachusetts reported road closures as a result of the many downed trees and tree limbs.

    Thousands of people lost electricity as a result of the storms, but power had been restored for most as of Saturday morning.
