A tornado thrashed its way through a Massachusetts area, injuring at least one person and causing significant damage, officials said Saturday.
In the wake of the twister that bore through Webster, a town near the Connecticut border, fire and rescue officials posted on Facebook that there were downed trees and power lines and people left without electricity.
“Three buildings have been condemned due to severe wind damage,” Webster Fire/Rescue wrote on Facebook. “Of that, two of the buildings are currently being torn down due to the damage leaving them structurally unsound.”
Roughly two dozen people had to leave their homes due to damage, officials said.
A person suffered injuries after “part of a roof fell on top of a car,” officials said in the post. The woman had been driving in town when the tornado hit and was taken to a hospital with minor injuries, Webster police said, according to The Associated Press.
Images of the destruction in the area captured a number of fallen trees and debris-covered streets.
