West Springfield Tree

A wind advisory was in effect for parts of western Massachusetts Wednesday.

Hampshire and Franklin Counties had the advisory issued for winds as high as 45 miles per hour until 7 p.m. Wednesday.

In Whately and Deerfield, police warned residents of falling trees and branches.

Deerfield police posted a photo of a very big tree down near North Main Street that fell on power lines. Deerfield police were called to Hillside Road a little after 9 a.m. Wednesday.

Hillside Road was closed from North Main Street to North Hillside Road.

“There are a lot of big trees and they’re aiming towards the house a lot too is what worries me more,” one local resident told 22News. “Sometimes it can be inconvenient trying to get somewhere and you know you have to get around.”

No one was hurt in Deerfield and the road has since reopened. Viewers also sent 22News a photo of this tree down on Circuit Ave. in West Springfield.

Joe Malloy of Springfield told 22News, “Very windy, it was really really gusty. I noticed that, yeah. It was bad.”

Thursday’s weather could bring some snow to western Massachusetts.
