The damage in North Adams is undeniable.

Massachusetts Gov. Maura Healey visited the town on Wednesday to survey the aftermath of heavy storms.

Residents there continued to voice their concerns. Repairs are expected to cost $1.5 million.
Trees are partially uprooted, and roads are covered in mud.

NewsChannel 13 crews in North Adams saw homes with severe damage as well.

“Our administration is committed to doing all that we can to maximize resources for residents, for businesses, and for communities affected by this serious flooding,” Healey said.

One local told NewsChannel 13 that the city of North Adams needs to prioritize managing severe storms and rainwater.

The overnight storm Sunday into Monday brought intense rain and flooding that flooded streets and damaged homes.
