Mayor: 'We are in life-saving mode' in western Massachusetts
By the CNN Wire Staff

June 2, 2011 3:37 a.m. EDT(CNN) -- Rescue workers went house-to-house, building-to-building early Thursday searching for survivors after tornadoes cut a deadly and destructive path through western Massachusetts, officials said.
At least four people were killed and 40 injured when at least two tornadoes touched down in portions of Springfield, Mayor Domenic Sarno said.

Probably the tail end of the front that brought so much destruction and death to the West and mid West. Mass has had destructive tornadoes before but they seem to come at 50 or 60 year intervals.

In the early1950s both Flint Michigan and Worcester Mass suffered tornadoes that killed over a hundred people in both places. 1953

I'm at my free-lance job in Chicopee and my supervisor, who lives in Springfield is not in. We know they are okay, but his cell is running out of time and his roads are blocked so we haven't heard much lately.
