This is a strange phenomena for this part of the country. For whatever reason, as the storm approached the MassMutual Center and the AHL offices, it turned right and headed south down Main Street. The home of the Springfield Falcons was opened up as a shelter by nightfall. The Falcons official Twitter account has some photos and videos of the aftermath.
