Google maps traffic data from yesterday. The main wind damage swath is pretty evident.

Ironically, the usual traffic congested spot through Waterbury is traffic free during this time.

I’ll most likely, a good thing, never see anything like this again living here. Sick. Too bad I have to work today and leave for vaca tomorrow, otherwise I’d damage hunt around town and take pics.

If you really cared about your on-line friends you would cancel your vacation and take pics for us.

Fam in SBY good? no damage to the house?

No damage to the house. A few limbs down, but I am not sure when power will be restored so I might take a trip out there after work.   

My mom's cell phone battery was low last night, and I know they have their land line tied in with the digital cable so that means there is no landline working (since I am sure they did not purchase the 48 hour battery with it).

o.k.  If I go I will be leaving Manchester at around 3:30.

I am sure there are still road closures at this point.

There were two separate TDS signatures from that cell. Definitely a radar confirmed tornado...likely two per Ryan.

Yeah my gut is one or two tornadoes there near Newtown, but the vast majority will be a big swath of RFD damage from eastern NY through Danbury. That had the look of a High Plains hail monster with 80 mph driven stones.

Sorta glad I stayed in NH. I got all work done and saw a stunning sunset on back-end of departing line of storms. 

Sounds like a helluva event in SW CT.

Just saw a live Facebook video from sleeping giant state park in Hamden. Massive tree damage there.

That reminds me a lot of the blowdown I saw just off 95 east of New Haven in July '89. Wow, that is so impressive.

Is that where the '89 tornado took down the last old growth hemlocks in New England? I think Ryan has a few writeups about that but I don't remember many specifics

Pretty sure Wiz should buy a pregnancy test for his girl asap. 

:lol:

she was enjoying the storm just as much as I was. That was really something else. I did drive through Newtown last night b/c I know people who live there and 84 was a mess into Newtown so I did back roads to Newtown and got on exit 10 but yeah Newtown was a mess. Then I got destroyed in the Waterbury construction traffic. I'm driving down to Branford soon then heading to Newtown after that so I'll get to see some of the damage during the daylight hours.

Ryan showed video of the time lapse at BDL. It clearly showed that funnel in the time lapse

Sick.

I wish I wasn’t lazy and had installed the outdoor security cams I’ve been procrastinating on. Would have loved to seen it unfold.
