As Tropical Storm Iasias passed through Berkshire County residents saw high winds, downed trees, heavy rains, and power outages. One Dalton resident caught a scary but incredible scene outside her Park St. home.

In the comments of this mesmerizing footage, the Berkshire County resident says everyone was ok, but they are without power which could take up to three days to restore.

Throughout Massachusetts, mostly in the central and western portions of the state, over 250,000 homes and businesses lost power. Winds reached 63 miles per hour in some parts of the county, leaving split trees and downed power lines everywhere.

A representative from Eversource said the cleanup started yesterday and will continue over the next three days.

A representative from National Grid, which provides electrical services to much of the southern Berkshires, reported several hundred outages on Tuesday night but had restored many of those customers.

Scattered outages, for a total of less than 100, remained on Wednesday morning in Southern Berkshire, and a handful of Northern Berkshire customers also remained out. As of this morning, 2,200 Berkshire County homes were still without power. One of those towns, Sandisfield, which saw a tornado touch down on Sunday, was hit extremely hard by Isaias yesterday as well and will likely not have power restored until Thursday.
