Weather Update: Severe weather hits

Gusty winds, heavy downpours, severe thunder and lightning, and possible hail could be coming to southwestern Connecticut this afternoon.

The expected weather is part of the same storm systems that cut a path of deadly destruction in many southern states over the past two days.

Hundreds of tornadoes tore through six states in the south, leaving at least 215 people dead or hurt.
