to the residents of bridgeport

man, i'm sorry about the storm damage. we had almost NOTHING here. i was driving home from work at about 2:30 and it rained a TINY bit (10 minutes maybe) not even that hard. the sky cleared up right away too (it DID get cloudy again later though. i don't know if it rained more again after that. i was in my cave)

Summer Storm Toys With Bridgeport, Conn.

Eyewitnesses Report Seeing Funnel Cloud; Mayor Orders Residents To Stay Home; Storm Also Hammers Queens, L.I

 

Connecticut's biggest city was under a state of emergency on Thursday after reports of building collapses and structural damage had parts of town blocked off.

In all, 23 people were injured and nine buildings were heavily damaged.

The whine of the chainsaw was the soundtrack of a summer night in Bridgeport.

A fast-moving storm turned it into a battered city of trees -- toppled onto homes and blown over in city parks. There were lots of broken windows on buildings and on cars..........
