Thunder, yes. Tornadoes, no.

We've had several lines of thunderstorms pass through the area today, including a real whopper at work that included a spot of hail this afternoon. However, apart from loud noises and some momentary hiccups in the electrical service, I haven't been seriously inconvenienced.

Other parts of the state were less fortunate. From boston.com:
At least four people were killed and a number of others were injured in the violent storms that swept across Massachusetts today, which included at least two tornadoes, state officials said today.

Two people were killed in Westfield, one in West Springfield, and one in Brimfield, said Scott MacLeod, a spokesman for the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency.

Governor Deval Patrick said damage had been reported in at least 19 communities, mostly in Central and Western Massachusetts. He declared a state of emergency, saying he was mobilizing up to 1,000 members of the National Guard to help in search and rescue, debris cleanup, and other recovery tasks.
