BRIDGEPORT - Crews in Bridgeport have started the process of tearing down some of the buildings badly damaged by last week's tornado.

Meanwhile, FEMA crews were in the city yesterday tabulating the damage to see if the city will qualify for federal disaster relief funds.

Mayor Bill Finch is asking people to report any damage they suffered in the tornado so it can be added to the total. He's asking people to do that by calling the city's emergency hotline at 203-579-3829.
