SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) - The city of Springfield has begun demolishing several properties damaged by last year's tornadoes.
The six properties in the city's Maple High/Six Corners neighborhood are a combination of city-owned, tax foreclosed, and privately owned properties.
The city will be fronting the more than $380,000 needed to cover the demolitions.
FEMA had initially denied funding the demolitions. The city is appealing that decision.
