(NECN: Kristen Caira - Gloucester, MA) - Wild weather across Massachusetts has left tens of thousands of residents without power.
Utility crews have been working overnight to restore power from heavy winds that downed trees and power lines.
Winds topped 60 miles per hour and tore the roof of an empty seaside motel in Gloucester.
By early Saturday, the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency reported about 24,500 people were without power statewide, mostly in the northeastern part of the state, down from a high of 100,000.
NECN reporter Kristen Caira joins us from Gloucester with the latest on the storm's aftermath.
