Crews are cleaning up damage in Worcester after a storm struck it and surrounding areas on Sunday night (08/31).

The damage occurred during a tornado warning for Worcester and Middlesex counties that began around 8 p.m. and ended before 9 p.m. There have not been any reports of a confirmed tornado, but National Weather Service investigators will determine whether a tornado struck the area.

In the Grafton Hill neighborhood, a tree fell on a home on Pilgrim Avenue and some power outages were reported. Worcester resident Amanda Addison told WBZ-TV a tree fell on her car.

“I have no idea what I am gonna do for work, to get to work on Tuesday,” she said.

Also, residents told WBZ-TV the storm sounded like a freight train.

Residents are urged to stay away from downed electricity lines and flooded areas.

No injuries have been reported.
