Stratford remembers last year's damaging storm

STRATFORD - A neighborhood in Stratford is still recovering from damaging storms that hit the area one year ago, when a tornado touched down in Bridgeport.

People living in the Lordship neighborhood say those storms uprooted trees, knocked down power lines and, in some cases, forced people out of their homes for weeks.

Some neighbors say that, looking at videos from the same storm in Bridgeport, things could have been much worse.
