(WTNH) – A Tornado Warning for Tolland and Hartford counties has expired, but sever thunderstorms continue to move through the state on Friday.
Here are reports of damage from the storms:
- BURLINGTON – Route 4 is closed at Smith Lane due to wires down
- WINDSOR LOCKS – Route 159 is closed at River Road because of a tree down
- SHERMAN – Route 38 is closed at Briardwood because of a tree down in wires.
“There is a slight chance some storms could be strong/severe with downpours and strong wind gusts. I can’t rule out an isolated tornado, so please listen for any watches or warnings to be issued,” said Meteorologist Gil Simmons.
These storms come after a round of severe storms ripped through parts of the state on Tuesday afternoon. Downpours caused flooding in several towns, including Waterbury.
The flooding occurred due to the ongoing drought, which causes the water not to be able to seep into the ground. Instead, it runs off or pools, causing flooding.
