Some severe weather moved through the Greater Danbury area yesterday afternoon.  Winds gusted up to 40 miles an hour yesterday afternoon in Danbury.  The City appears to have dodged the worst of the storm, which hit the Litchfield County area.  Some towns reported small hail.  

There are still scattered power outages reported this morning in Kent and New Milford. 

Yesterday afternoon a tree came down on Route 302 in Bethel, closing the road between Route 58 and Taylor Road.  The state DOT was called to the scene, later Bethel Police were able to direct traffic through one lane of travel and the road was fully reopened around 7:30pm. 

It appears likely a microburst or weak tornado moved through Kent.  The Kent Office of Emergency Management received an update from the town's Eversource representative that nearly all power restorations would be complete by early this morning.  At the height of the storm over 76% of Kent Eversource customers were without power.
