SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB/WSHM) -Thursday was another First Alert Weather day, as another round of downpours made their way through western Massachusetts.
We begin at our studio on liberty street, where we first saw strong downpours and wind.
Nearby on Victoria Street, a massive tree came down, and the road became closed for cleanup.
Now to Westside, where we came across a tree down on Dewey Street. West Springfield police blocked a large section of the road as crews worked on downed powerlines.
In the same area, one of our Western Mass News employees had to turn around after capturing a flooded Circle Drive.
