ACTON - Residents in Acton are cleaning up after severe weather caused major damage to mobile homes and other structures in the area.

The U.S. National Weather Service has determined that a microburst is to blame for the severe damage in Acton. NWS reports that the microburst produced winds near 90 mph.

Thursday's severe weather that hit the area was part of a system that swept across Montana from Idaho.
