As you can see in the video, this sent large trees crashing down, along with power lines. Up to 50 trees were uprooted along parts of Meadow and Hunt Streets, and up to a dozen cars were crushed by falling tree limbs in the area as well. There were even reports of damaged roofs in some of the neighborhoods. Fortunately, no injuries were reported.
22News spoke to some residents to see what they witnessed when the microburst came through their town.
"The wind was going...and it just hit this area here and you could hear trees just coming down everywhere", said Scott Monte of Agawam.
"It was calm at first, and then [we experienced] a torrential downpour; the wind was almost like a hurricane", described Agawam resident, Alan Woessner.
22News went back to the area of Hunt and Meadow Streets Tuesday morning to check and see how the cleanup was going. All roads were back open and most of the trees and limbs that were down, were either cleared or moved out of the way. Tree crews arrived just before 7AM, to continue the cleanup process.
