6:00 p.m. Danger Passes… for now.

At 6 pm as the weather reports show footage of a tornado touching down in Whitinsville just east of Manchaug Pond, these photos were taken here on the lake.

25 minutes later,  we’re told the “Sutton storm” is strengthening with thunder rumbling loudly giving us a bit of a shake to the west – Whitinsvile and south to Douglas – with lightening seen to the north.

With many summer homes both cottages and camper trailers and tents on Manchaug’s shore,  we pray all continue to be safe.

Stay tuned as another storm area has formed and grown once again in the Springfield area with another tornado now being reported in Westfield.
