Heavy rain and high winds have led to power outages across Massachusetts.
"A lot of wind... a lot of wind," Charlie Morse, a Newton homeowner, said.
The third floor of a home in Lowell was crushed. Apparently, it completely split in half. Luckily the homeowner got up out of bed to go out with his brother before the tree fell.
A big mess was left on West Street in Wilmington. Residents there lost power, and it could be days before they get it back.
Several downed wires were left tangled on the ground, blocking people in their driveways. A tree fell on a car driving by.
Residents say they're glad no one was hurt.
Nick Zanelli and his wife are residents on West Street. They were the first ones to call 911 after an electrical pole was downed.
"So we heard a big boom. We came out and looked at it. Everyone was okay, and that's all that matters," he said.
Zanelli admits he didn't think the wind could have possibly snapped an electrical pole in half.
"To be honest with you, I was in shock a little bit what's going on here," he said.
And while being without power is an inconvenience, he's happy to deal because the best news tonight is that no one was hurt.
Police still have West Street blocked off. They say it could be quite some time before people on the street have power.
Miles away in Newton, a tree damaged another house, and trees and branches blocked the roadways.
There have been no reports of injuries so far. But as winds ramp up, homeowners especially cross their fingers there's no more serious damage.
"I don't really know if there's much you can do, just pray," Morse said.
As of 8:35 p.m., there were 8,552 power outages in Massachusetts.
As of 5 p.m., there were 20,502 outages in Maine, 10,536 outages in Maine, 10,536 outages in New Hampshire, 7,535 outages in Connecticut, 6,967 outages in Vermont and 3,001 outages in Rhode Island. The total outages in New England is 72,475.
According to SKYWARN, measured wind gusts exceeding 40 mph have been reported in several Massachusetts towns, including Cambridge, North Weymouth, Marion and Milton.
Damage reports have also been logged in dozens of towns in the state, including Taunton, Foxborough, Northfield, Falmouth, Brewster, West Springfield and Salem.
The National Weather Service says wind gusts could reach 60 mph as a warm weather front moves out of the state.
That has led to the cancellation of some ferry service to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket.
