PHOTO GALLERY: Thunderstorms cause heavy damage, cut power for thousands
Thunderstorms hit quickly in parts of central and southern New Hampshire Thursday afternoon, producing wind gusts powerful enough to knock down trees and power lines.
Reports included trees and wires down near Routes 9 and 125 in Barrington.
In Dover, police officers could be seen directing traffic at some intersections where traffic lights had lost power Thursday evening.
The storm brought strong winds, heavy rain and hail to the area, and left thousands without power.
Check out viewer submitted photos from the aftermath of the storm below.
