Watertown residents are assessing the damage caused by Sunday afternoon’s quick-moving storms.
Some residents are dealing with downed trees, power outages or other damages inside their home.
“We were inside the house, and then we heard the hail ... the wind, and we heard the big boom,” Butch John said.
That boom was a tree that fell on John’s home. The storm also damaged part of his roof.
“Three holes, and there’s leakage upstairs," he said.
Another tree gave out in on Route 6, blocking the street and knocking power out to some homes on the block.
Meantime, other residents dealt with hail damage.
“I’ve never seen anything like this,” John Sullivan said.
The storm shattered one of the windows in an original part of the Sullivan's home, which was built in 1890.
“Golf ball-sized hail blew through it,” Sullivan said.
The hail also caused thousands of dollars’ worth of damage to Bill Hosking’s property.
“I came down right after the storm ended, and I was a bit horrified by the fact that there’s probably about 75 panes of glass out,” said Hosking.
Now that he’s weathered the storm, Hosking hopes this isn’t an omen.
“Hopefully, the weather is a bit kinder for the rest of the year,” he said.
In Middlebury, firefighters battled a blaze that destroyed a garage on Christian Road and damaged a minivan parked outside.
Police said lightning is the likely cause of the fire.
