NWS team to assess storm damage in Conn.
The National Weather Service is sending a team to Connecticut to assess storm damage.
One of the questions they expect to answer is: Did a tornado touch down?
The team will be assessing the damage in Connecticut, particularly the towns of Brookfield, Danbury, New Milford, Newtown, Oxford, Ridgefield, Southbury, Winstead, Bethany, Hamden, Cheshire and Durham.
A meteorologist with the Connecticut Weather Center said data suggests there was a tornado that swept through the area from southern New Fairfield and into Brookfield.
Damage reports along with radar data that shows fast moving wind speeds in opposite directions implies a rotational storm.
A final assessment including results of the survey are expected to be completed by 8 p.m.
The storm survey information will also be available http://www.weather.gov/nyc
