Boston 25 flew a drone above neighborhoods in Hanover to get a wider scope of the damage. Massive trees had to be lifted off homes with a crane. Many businesses taped "no power" signs on their storefronts. Some business owners kept their doors open while using generators.

Fire crews remained busy, responding to alarm activations as some finally had their power turned on. Many residents in the area said the strong winds created serious damage.

"Two trees came down in the front of the house, took off part of the roof, broke a window, took some bricks, broke the front stairs, all the gutters are down," said Hanover resident Mike Granahan.
