Intense Winds Topple Pine Trees Onto Massachusetts Road

Intense wind swept across western Massachusetts on March 29, causing power outages and road closures across the area.

This footage was recorded by Windy Jansen, a local resident, and shows two pine trees crashing to the ground after being blown over by strong gusts of wind in Cohasset.

“I saw the trees swaying quite a bit and suspected they were going to fall,” Jansen told Storyful. Credit: Windy Jansen via Storyful
