STRATFORD - The recent extreme weather the region has been seeing is causing something people are calling "weather panic."

From deadly tornadoes in Missouri and Massachusetts to bad thunderstorms here in southwestern Connecticut, residents are worried about what's next.

News 12 Connecticut Meterologist Paul Piorek says there has been more movement in the upper levels of the atmosphere and that's what's been causing damage nationwide.

An environmental analyst from the Department of Environmental Protection says there is some good news though with this recent storm; it knocked the high ozone levels back to normal. He says this could mean relief for children, the elderly and those with medical conditions such as asthma.
