Sunny Sherman asks:
Do you know anything about a tornado hitting Saugatuck Shores last night around 9?
How else to explain a 220-pound teak table blowing off a 2nd floor deck into a pine tree about 25 feet off the ground?!
There are no official reports of a tornado — though a tornado warning was issued for southern Fairfield County during that time.
Strong winds and heavy rain knocked out power to more than 30,000 Eversource customers statewide.
Roseville Road is closed in its entirety due to downed wires. So is Coleytown Road, near #6.
At 7 a.m., that included 878 customers in Westport, and 887 in Weston — 7 and 22% of all customers in those towns, respectively. Those were the highest numbers in the state, behind Darien and Norwalk.
Among the customers without power: the “06880” office (aka “my home”). Eversource had no estimate of when it would be restored.
