High winds, lightning and thunder caused headaches across southwestern Connecticut Wednesday.

Wind gusts of up to 40 mph toppled trees, causing power lines to fall throughout the area. In Stamford, High Ridge Road was shut down due to a fallen tree. While homeowners still had power, CL&P planned to temporarily kill electricity so the tree could be cut. The road was opened during the afternoon.
