I wasn’t in town yesterday afternoon, but I hear there was quite a deluge. The Metrowest Daily News has a rundown of the damage, including a lightning strike at the police station:
In Southborough, flooding led to road closures on Parkerville Road, Main Street at Parkerville Road, and Boston Road, police said. The worst flooding was on Parkerville Road, where fire officials went house to house checking for damage, and helped secure one house’s propane tanks that were floating in the water.
Flooding also was reported near the Assabet River, and multiple lightning strikes were reported, including at the Southborough Police Station.
The heavy rain also caused major flooding at the library. The entire lower level, including the children’s area was under water. You can see photos of the damage to the library — along with other shots of the storm — over at southboroughnews.com.
The National Weather Service says more rain is predicted for today, but nothing as “impressive” as yesterday.
How did your property fare in the storm? Is your basement flooded? Branches down? Power or phone issues (I heard reports of phones being down for a time). Share your experience in the comments.
Update: The Boston Globe reports phones were out at the Southborough Police Station for 8 hours due to the lightning strike.
