(WGGB/WSHM) -More rain has hit western Massachusetts days after more flooding caused damage in several communities.

Saturday’s rain was brief, but there was a generous downfall.

In our First Alert Weather checker, Western Mass News checked out the rainfall in several communities. This is a look at what we saw on the Mass Pike going through Ludlow, some heavy showers.

This is what the roads looked like in Palmer and Ware.

But the day wasn’t a total washout, this is what the view was at Brunelle’s Marina Thursday afternoon. The gas dock and ramps were open today and will be Sunday, this comes after the marina saw damage from recent heavy rains and flooding.

“My parents brought us up here on the river at Brunelle’s it’s a beautiful place and it’s home it’s basically home,” said Boudreau of Granby.

Douglas Boudreau has been coming here for years. While he didn’t take his boat in the water on Saturday, he still took in the views by the water with his family.

“The docks aren’t ready and they’re working really hard to get them ready and I figure I’ll be in in a matter of a couple weeks,” added Boudreau.

He added that he is looking forward to being back on the water soon and of course before you make any plans be sure to check the Western Mass News weather app for any changes that may impact your day.
