... Summary...

microburst /straight line wind damage/ in South Deerfield in
Franklin County Massachusetts on July 7 2015.

A microburst caused damage at 452 PM EDT on hillside Road near the
River Road intersection in South Deerfield... just to the north of
The Mount Sugarloaf state reservation. The microburst was about 2500
feet long and up to 1000 feet wide.

Several tall Pine trees were snapped off at the top... while several
other large trees fell taking down power lines. All trees fell in a
south-southwest to north-northeast direction. A witness reported
horizontal winds and trees all bent and broken in the same
direction. A gazebo was blown off its foundation in the backyard of
one home.

Wind speeds in this microburst were estimated at 80 to 90 mph.

For reference...
a microburst is a convective downdraft with an affected outflow
area
of less than 2 1/2 miles wide and peak winds lasting less than
5 minutes. Microbursts may induce dangerous horizontal/vertical
wind shears... which can adversely affect aircraft performance and
cause property damage. Straight-line winds are generally any wind
that is not associated with rotation... used mainly to
differentiate them from tornadic winds.
