A fast-moving storm — with hail, heavy rain and high winds — roared through parts of town yesterday evening, around 7:45. More than 500 Westporters lost power.
The Fire Department responded to 18 calls with 45 minutes. They included burning and downed power lines, carbon monoxide, and a tree resting on a house on Vani Court.
Sherwood Island State Park will be closed today (Sunday), due to damage.
But the storm left as quickly as it came. Skies cleared before nightfall.
Today is forecast to be mostly sunny, with a high around 80.
