Officials in multiple Massachusetts communities fielded reports of power lines and trees down, damaging buildings and cars as Tropical Storm Isaias rolled through the state on Tuesday.

In various parts of Massachusetts, more than 220,000 electric customers were without power as of about 10 p.m., according to the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency. About 140,000 people were without power as of 7 a.m. Wednesday.

A tropical storm warning and flash-flooding advisories were expected to remain in effect through Tuesday night, a meteorologist told the Globe.

Here’s a look at some of the damage, most of which took place in Central and Western Massachusetts.
