Because of so many trees falling in less than a minute, they are saying that it was a wind shear—think inverted-tornado, where a strong wind hits straight down to the ground and shoots out in all directions. My street seemed to be the only street with damage in Great Barraington.
One of seven trees that fell. Can you see the other tree crushing my neighbor's car in the background?
I was so lucky because the tree which crushed my neighbor's car fell right alongside my car, leaving these branches peeping through the open window.
