GREENFIELD, MA -- FEMA is on its way to the Springfield, Massachusetts area, particularly Greenfield where flooding after Hurricane Irene has been devastating.
The swift currents of Shelburne Falls were strong enough to move a tractor-trailer and anything else in the water's path.
By evening, some of the water had receded, but residents were till amazed at how strong the currents still were. Hundreds of people were evacuated to a Greenfield shelter, and when that one got too crowded, a local school was opened.
"I think it's one of the craziest things I've ever seen for living in Greenfield...my whole life," said one Greenfield resident.
Greenfield residents are being asked to stay inside.
