Western Massachusetts Tornadoes – One Year Later

One year ago today, horrific tornadoes tore through Western Massachusetts leaving a path of destruction. A year later, we remember the individuals who lost their lives and those who suffered incredible property damage and personal loss as a result of those deadly storms.

Through this tragedy, the resolve of the residents of Western Massachusetts affected by this storm was on full display for all to see. In the hours, days, and weeks after the storm, we as a Commonwealth witnessed entire communities come together as one.

To this day, we admire and applaud the spirits and resolve of the residents of Springfield, Monson, Brimfield, Sturbridge, Southbridge, Westfield and Charlton, and we will never forget those who lost their lives on June 1, 2011.
