Hamilton St. in Belchertown without power for almost 30 hours

Hampshire County

Monday’s wind storm caused extensive damage across western Massachusetts. 

Chainsaws were out in full force Tuesday as the cleanup got underway after Monday’s wind storm knocked down trees and power lines.

As of 1 p.m. Tuesday, more than 13,000 people were still without power in Massachusetts, including residents living on Hamilton St. in Belchertown. The street lost power around 1:45 p.m. Monday. 

“Last night it was freezing,” Michael Neilon said. “Right now the temperature in the house is below 38 degrees. We can’t flush toilets, we have no way to cook, we have no way to heat our homes. People on the street are getting cold and there are families, children and elderly.”

National Grid has been working to make the necessary repairs. 

Meanwhile, people just want to get their power back as soon as possible.
