Uprooted Tree in Aug 4 Macroburst

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Macrobursts don’t happen often but when they do, they leave behind a lasting memory.

Last August, a macroburst swept through Warwick and West Warwick – ripping up trees and tossing them onto homes and cars.

On the early morning of August 4th, a line of severe thunderstorms approached Rhode Island with a blast of powerful winds.

Watch the video above for more on last summer’s macroburst.
