BRIDGEPORT - Four days after a tornado struck Bridgeport, those who live in the city are now facing the difficult task of rebuilding their lives.

Residents say they are frustrated as they wait to find out if and when they can go back into their homes to retrieve clothing and other necessities.

Red Cross trucks have been passing out cold water and snacks to the victims in the affected neighborhood. They will also be doing door to door outreach to determine exactly how to help those impacted by the storm.
