    On Tuesday, strong storms dropped hail and caused minor damage in northern Connecticut.

    Storms are moving through again on Wednesday, bringing thunder and lightning, and there is a chance for an afternoon thunderstorm in some towns.

    The National Weather Service issued a tornado warning for Litchfield County from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesday as a storm showing rotation moved through Copake, New York just before 5 p.m.

    It headed southeast through Massachusetts and along the extreme northwest corner of Connecticut. 

    Storms brought down trees and power lines in Falls Village yesterday.

    One tree came down on cars parked in the high school parking lot., including the superintendent's.

    "It's just a car. We're just here to make sure all the kids were safe," Supt. Patricia Chamberlain said.

    Thunder, lightning, high winds and hail were reported in several towns, including Salisbury, Canaan, South Windsor and Manchester. Lightning strikes came very close to homes in Cornwall.
