Second Storm: The Sequel

As Westport continues to clean up following this afternoon’s storm, over 2,000 customers remain without power.

Downed lines and large trees still litter main roads and side streets, causing closures and detours.

Many Post Road traffic lights are out. One Westporter said it took her an hour to get from Southport to Compo Beach.

The fast-moving, tremendously intense storm — which roared through just after 2 p.m. — may have been a microburst. That’s defined by the National Weather Service as “a localized column of sinking air (downdraft) within a thunderstorm, usually less than or equal to 2.5 miles in diameter. Microbursts can cause extensive damage at the surface.”

Grace Salmon Park, meanwhile, is in disarray after last night’s storm. Up to half a dozen large trees have been uprooted. One visitor called the Imperial Avenue park “decimated.”
