East Arlington's Mike Prior was at home with his 5-year-old daughter Meghan, who was playing dress-up, when the microburst rolled through the neighborhood Wednesday evening, knocking a tree over on his home at 63 Marathon St. (photos attached).
Michelle Pirog, an Arlington native, was in her apartment at 276 Massachusetts Ave. when the storm hit.
"Been to Niagra Falls? Imagine looking at your window into them," she said later Wednesday night. "You see absolutely nothing but a real white wall."
Pirog's 2011 Nissan Versa, which she had just bought and had less than 3,000 miles on it, was buried under a tree, along with four or five other vehicles, in the parking lot behind 276 Massachusetts Ave. (photo attached).
