Massachusetts Power Outages were as high as nearly 250,000 at the height of the storm with additional power outages reported in New York, Connecticut and Rhode Island..
..NWS Boston/Norton and the Storm Prediction Center (SPC) are determining whether this event was a result of a strong Mesoscale Convective System (MCS) or a weak derecho, which is Spanish for “big wind” from a complex of severe thunderstorms..
