(WTNH) -- Thunderstorms weakened as they passed through Connecticut Saturday evening.
At one point shortly before 7 p.m. Saturday, just over 5,000 customers were reported to be without power. Many of those outages were in the town of Kent.
A Tornado Warning was previously issued for portions of Fairfield and New Haven County, which expired at 12:45 p.m. Another warning was in effect for Litchfield County, and that warning expired at 2:30 p.m.
While there were no reports of any tornadoes, many areas near Danbury reported gusty winds and flash flooding. Wind damage was reported in the Litchfield area, as well as Kent and Ridgefield. Route 7 in Kent was shut down near Route 341 as trees had fallen into the roadway.
Late Saturday morning, at least two confirmed tornadoes touched down in the New York City metropolitan area. Those storms also weakened as they moved northward into Connecticut.
