Massachusetts cleans up after severe weather

AGAWAMI, Mass. -- Crews are cleaning up after severe weather hit the East Coast.

In Southern Massachusetts, trees were uprooted, others snapped in half, and cars destroyed.

No one was hurt but residents were definitely scared.

"All of a sudden it sounded like a train was coming by, and we looked out and the stuff was flying off the deck and a tree came down," said an Agawami resident Rick Zielenski. "You know, it sounded like a tornado."

The National Weather Service confirmed a micro-burst was the cause of the damage.  While a tornado has a circular pattern of destruction, a micro-burst has a downward wind pattern similar to straight line winds.
