7:03 am
and then as my photographer pans over, see just how close it got to this woman's home. she was home alone at the time. but again, we are talking about at least half dozen homes seeing significant damage and there could be more as they continue to work to assess the situation. they are going to have to cut power to thousands of homes stretching up to hanscom air force base as they work to clean up this area because again, we are talking about a lot of downed power lines. agai t and this woman inside this home, she was asleep at the time alone, very frightening. this is what she had to say. >> it was crazy. so like the power went out and then there was tons of like crashes and booms and so i like ran -- there was a tree that fell on the side window and i ran to the back of the house and then there's seven or eight trees down on the back and crashed through the porch. and then i came out here and on the wires.
7:04 am
the command center that the concord fire department and police department have now set up. they are saying that this is going to be an hour's long clean-up process. mema here and asking everyone to let them clean up the storm damage. stephanie coueignoux, fox twenty five news. >> gene: across town from stephanie the win were so strong ripped a tree from the ground and bringing it down on a look at 2a with damage that is slowing down traffic in the area this morning. daniel? >> daniel: good morning, gene. we are along route 2a here in concord. you can see the massive tree i'm standing in front of. looks to be several trees that came down during the storm this morning. branches pretty small, but behind this a massive tree that i'm definitely going to show you before i get to that i wanted to definitely show you this first. this shows you the extents of the force. this is actually the bark from
7:05 am
these trees here along route 2a. i want to take you behind so you can see. kevin lemanowicz, chief meteorologist, tweeted out this morning, if you notice the crisscrossing of the trees, definitely shows you the wind, and how the wind was forcing these trees down. of course, the national weather service will be out here today to determine, in fact, what caused all of this damage, if it was, in fact, straight-line winds or if it was a tornado here in the concord, massachusetts area. i want to particular you to some video now just a little north of where we are along 2a. you can see this business. this is mill brooke farm, the owners of this farm not there at the present moment, but see the massive tree draped over the canopy, all the pots and businesses sells to the business. again, a lot of clean-up to be
7:06 am
jessica reyes mentioned this morning that the power is out. power is also out in this area. we are going to wait until we get finished with this live shot and go over here and knock on this homeowner's door to see if they are home, in fact, because if you look behind their house, you can see a massive tree down in the back of their house. like photographer working with this morning, went back there to see the damage. it is pretty extensive and show to you in the next live shot in concord. reporting live this daniel miller, fox25 news. >> sara: before the storm hit concord it ripped through marlboro. that's where we find jessica reyes look at several trees that came down on the storm and making it hard to get around there, jess. >> jessica: they are, sara. here in walker street the road is still closed and a little bit of better look now that the truck is out of the way. part of a tree that was blown down when the storm came through
7:07 am
working to get rid of the debris on the road, but did take down some of the wires along the side of the road. so here as well, they will be working to repair those just as soon as the debris is removed from the road here this morning. when we first got here, around 4:00 this morning, there were nearly 2,000 people in the town, 10% of marlboro without power. right now that number is down to 124. many of them do live along this route, walker street and we saw some debris earlier this morning and spoke with one woman and unluck few, 124 people without power as we speak. take a listen. >> this is a good time. even though we don't get many severe weathers in new england, now is good time to put a package together. candles, lights, extra water, something that we didn't do,
7:08 am
didn't have a lot of that stuff. maybe she will after dealing with this storm. she is one of the unlucky few that don't have anything right now. look at walker street. less than a mile from her home. everybody up and down this street. they are without power as well. we actually just talked to a guy that lives on the street a couple minutes ago, he is without power, the storm was without power and it woke him up. we will be hearing from him in the 8:00-hour. i'm jessica reyes, fox25 news. >> gene: it has not been confirmed that the tornado touched down but it was wild out there. look at damage from sky fox. kevin, does that give any sense what happened? >> trying to find if all the trees going in the same direction when blown over. some were ripped near the top, some actually fell and uprooted from the bottom and this is, of course, sky fox video and seeing a lot of trees in the same
7:09 am
this. see how this one lying this way and this one this way and it could be indicative of spinning motion. we know it was definitely there and saw rotation at live stormtracker radar but what has to be determined is where these trees fell by spinning winds like this and collided together and falling like that like pickup stuck -- sticks what you had. survey team out and look at all the damag tweeted out and clearly shows trees stacked on top of one another, again something that could be indicative of the rotation in the storm and winds blowing at different directions and blowing things around in a circle rather than straight. straight-line winds impossible with a tornado and could have been both of those and live
7:10 am
concord toward bedford, rotation in this notch. whether it got to ground level though will be determined by the investigation by the national weather service. >> we sent out alert as soon as we heard and as storms moved right through. if you want to pinpoint the rain moving through, the fox25 weather app best for radar in dangerous situations and turn to it even if you lose po store and google play. now we want to get check on roads with julie grauert. >> julie: new accident to tell you about. 128 southbound after route 3 in lexington area. not seeing a lot of backups yet because of that but it is a highly traveled part of the morning commute and not cleared out within the next 45 minutes it will cause some problems. as we shift south, new accident on the expressway. it is right before columbia road. also seeing heavy steady volume

7:34 am
and look in this direction, see the sun but if you notice the grass, it is turning in so many different directions. kevin lemanowicz, if you're listening, this is something you would say send the national weather service in this backyard so they will definitely get back here to see if it is straight-line winds or possible tornado but another thing i wanted to show you, it is back in the woods, see all the branches down, they are fresh branches what you can see from the naked the woods. notice massive trees that are literally being supported by other trees that have been somant force taking them off its foundation and into other trees and again, this is some of the mess that people here in the concord area are waking up to this morning. just in front of this house, crews actually shredding 1349 trees that are actually on route 2a just so they can get

7:36 am
marlboro to concord and notch that goes on by and see it here again, the notch where you're finding the tornado, go closer to see it better too. and find out this storm had enough juice to it to produce what looked like spinning winds. again, the notch looked at it from concord to here and lobe sticking down from the storm. look at it a little mer closely, this is the area we are talking about, concord from where all the damage was, red and green on velocity scan and red toward it. you can get spinning rotation here when you see opposite spinning winds. called wind sheer. but we can also take the live stormtracker radar turn it and cut layer through the atmosphere and find those winds again. this is toward the radar, this is away and right next to each other, zoom down in there and find out closely right in concord, this is spinning all the way down to the ground. looks to me like there was at
7:37 am
right at ground level, right there in concord and you can clearly see three-dimensional view of the live radar and velocity scan, amazing view of something you don't see very often and something you would not see at 3:19 in the morning in the dark and all the heavy rain that was happening out there. in the bright red area, there's independence road, this is elect road and this is cambridge turnpike pike and area that daniel miller is right now looking at the damage that's happened clearly and some of the so really good view what was happening on live stormtracker radar at the time you wouldn't be able to see it and at sleep or too dark outside. >> julie: i know you and shiri have been looking at it. 138 canton tow truck on scene, ambulance has left but still have the left lane -- two left lanes blocked because fire truck
