Enfield Cleans Up After Storms That Knocked Down Trees



    Enfield is cleaning up after storm damage on Sunday.

    The town of Enfield is cleaning up after severe storms knocked down trees onto homes, cars and roads.

    Oak Street has reopened after closing earlier this morning until about 5:30 a.m. as crews worked to repair electrical wires that fell during the height of the storm.

    The town of Enfield has condemned some homes in town after trees fell on them.

    Crews stayed on scene throught the night at a Crescent Beach Drive home where storms brought down a tree onto a house Sunday evening.

    The two adults and two children who live there received food, clothing and toys from the Red Cross after they were forced from their home. Red Cross officials said the family was able to make their own housing arrangements.

    A microburst on Taylor Road downed branches and wires, causing many people to lose power. Most of the Connecticut Light & Power customers there have regained power. The road was closed Sunday night near Shaker Road after reports that a tree fell on a car.

    On Sunday night, lightning sparked a fire at a Prospect Avenue home.
