CLINTON, MASS. (WHDH) - A tornado warning was issued for parts of Worcester County Thursday morning as the remnants of Tropical Storm Fred churned through New England.
Though the National Weather Service has yet to confirm whether a tornado actually touched down several trees along Beech and Birch streets in Clinton were mangled by high winds as the storm moved through around 1 p.m.
Large limbs came crashing down across the roadways and left debris scattered across lawns and driveways.
“I was in the attic playing games and then on my phone there came an alert and right as the alert popped up I heard roaring and a bunch of trees falling outside so I ran downstairs,” said resident Daniel Allen.
Allen and his sister Hanna hid in their basement as the strong storm tore apart their back yard from the porch to the fire pit.
“I saw that come down and went into the laundry room and made everyone come with me so fast,” said Hanna Allen.
SKY7 HD flew over the area where crews have been called in to clean up the mess.
No injuries were reported. As of 4:30 p.m., only about two dozen homes and businesses were reported to be without power.
So far, there have been no official reports of any tornado touchdowns in the area.
