My wife and I were watching the wind in the trees when we heard what sounded like a freight train coming up the driveway. We could see a wall of wind debris coming up the drive, so me, Karen and my daughter headed for the basement. We could hear cracking and thuds and when it died down, which was less than 30 seconds, we found about 20 white pines, average about 60 feet, pretty much leveled, all in a quarter acre area. The rest of the yard and the house are fine.  We think it may have even been a small tornado. - Jeff Michaelson, 9:38 a.m.

Power out in North Quidnessett area. Neighbor decided it was a good time to clear the gutters and is up on a ladder right now. - Samantha Turner, 8:33 a.m.

Limb and wire down on Route 1A at Hamilton Allenton Road. - David Darlington, 7:25 a.m.

One of the limbs on Stony Lane has dragged power lines to the ground. Power out. About 1400 Stony Lane.  - David Darlington, 7:10 a.m.

Three major limbs down on Stony Lane north of Route 2. Power out as well. - David Darlington, 7:03 a.m.

Small limbs down in North Quidnessett Road. Route 1 clear. Frenchtown, Rotue 2 clear. Allie's is open. - David Darlington, 6:52 a.m.

Why is the town web site not working?
Samantha Turner August 30, 2011 at 03:46 PM
The website's provider is experiencing problems all across the state. Most e-mail accounts for town, school, fire and police department employees are not working, too.
