A wicked thunderstorm sparked lightning, toppled trees and spawned rainbows across Mass.

A severe summer storm brought hail, lightning strikes and heavy rainfall across the Commonwealth on Tuesday evening.

Firefighters responded to two lightning strikes in Newburyport Tuesday afternoon. One of the strikes was believed to have started a fire at a home on Pine Street, according to the Newburyport News.

Hail was even reported in some areas, such as Peabody, West Springfield, and Wilbraham.

In Franklin County, multiple fallen trees were reported, with a few causing roof damage on several homes in the community, according to the National Weather Service. Two homes in Concord lost power after a tree fell on top of utility lines, and a massive tree barely missed an apartment in Foxboro, NECN reports.


However, it seems like one good thing did come out of Tuesday’s storm: Afterward, gorgeous skies and vibrant rainbows (and in some cases, double rainbows) were visible across Massachusetts.
