... Summary...
the National Weather Service in Gray ME has confirmed a
microburst /straight line wind damage/ near Albion in Kennebec
County Maine on July 28 2015.

The microburst occurred along bog Road in Albion just north of
the intersection with Route 9. Winds from the microburst snapped
or uprooted a couple hundred trees along the path, tore metal
roofing material off several buildings... and blew over and
demolished a Camper used to house chickens. About 70 chickens
perished in the storm. The microburst was accompanied by
wind-driven hail up to 1-inch in diameter which caused an
estimated $20,000 in damages to crops in the area.

This information can also be found on our website at
weather.Gov/gyx.

For reference...
a microburst is a convective downdraft with an affected outflow
area of less than 2 1/2 miles wide and peak winds lasting less than
5 minutes. Microbursts may induce dangerous horizontal/vertical
wind shears... which can adversely affect aircraft performance and
cause property damage. Straight-line winds are generally any wind
that is not associated with rotation... used mainly to
differentiate them from tornadic winds.
