BRIDGEPORT - Today marked three months since a tornado swept trough Bridgeport, causing significant damage in parts of the city.

Crews are still out on East Main Street repairing damage caused by the winds.

Area residents say it has been a slow process as FEMA has denied requests for federal disaster aid. They say the decision on who receives aid should not solely be based on a formula to determine how much damage there was.
