BRIDGEPORT - Six days after a tornado tore through downtown Bridgeport, the Barnum Museum is dealing with one of its more difficult cleanups.

The museum's director, Kathleen Maher, estimates the cost will be into the hundreds of thousands of dollars, though she believes everything will be able to be salvaged.

The museum is hoping to clean things up in time for P.T. Barnum's 200th birthday celebration July 5.
