    (NECN) - There was quite the clean up effort on Thursday in Tilton, N.H.

    Officials say an area at least a quarter-mile wide and a half mile long was hit by the microburst.

    The clean up could take some time. There are also more than 1,000 power outages being reported in other regions of New Hampshire.
