Posted: Updated:
METHUEN, Mass. (WHDH) -  Heavy rain and strong winds left a trail of damage through Methuen as storms passed through Thursday night.

Trees came down, branches were snapped off trees, sidewalks even buckled in some spots.

“I looked outside and across the river and it was just blowing through. My mom and I ran in to the bathroom,” Linda Brody said.

Neighbors are saying it was a microburst.

“The front door, the roof, the vestibule window, the storm window in the door is gone,” Brody said. “It was stunning, we weren't prepared for this at all.”

Some residents say the storm came so fast they couldn’t believe their eyes.

“All of a sudden the sky got dark.It just down poured just in two seconds. Trees were flying everywhere,” Steve Perry said.
