Storm Slams Area Still Recovering From Tornado



    (NECN) - As Western Mass. continues to clean up from June 1 tornadoes, another storm devastates the area.

    Nearly 9,000 people were still without power Wednesday afternoon, and National Grid said it would take until at least 6 p.m. to restore power for all residents. A state of emergency has been declared to help surrounding communities, and to allow local officials to spend more money on cleanup efforts.

    For some Wilbraham residents, this is a repeat of the June 1 tornadoes. For others, this was the first summer storm to pack such a punch.

    " It was horendous hail. Noisy, I could not hear anything. I did not hear one tree drop down. The wind and the rain. It was frightening. The last one, I didn't get anything like that. It was close by, but I didn't get it." said one area resident.

    No injuries were reported in the storm.
