PEMBROKE, MASS. (WHDH) - Wind gusts nearing 65 mph in some Massachusetts communities led to downed trees and toppled power lines on Friday morning.
Residents in one Pembroke neighborhood were left stuck in their homes for hours after a pair of massive trees fell and blocked both ends of Pleasant Street.
“There are trees blocking both entrances to my house,” Heather LaMarre said. “There’s a big tree here and on the other side there is a humongous tree.”
The Duxbury Fire Department wrote on Twitter that they were responding to numerous calls about downed trees and wires.
Crews worked to remove at least one large tree that could be seen dangling across a roadway as it rested on power lines.
Another downed power line appeared to spark a fire in the town.
The public is urged to use caution while traveling on the roadways.
A downed tree took down power lines on Pond Road in Billerica.
In Littleton, a power pole snapped in half on Foster Street and a large tree came down on wire son Oak Hill Drive.
Tens of thousands of customers were without power as of Friday morning.
