Thunderstorms have caused damaged in select parts of the state, particularly Fairfield County.

Severe thunderstorm warnings Litchfield and Fairfield counties expired at 3:45 p.m. and 5 p.m., respectively.

There are also severe thunderstorm watches statewide untill 9 p.m.

Lightning struck a church steeple on Martin Luther King Drive in Norwalk before it caught fire. Norwalk firefighters responded to extinguish the flames coming from the steeple.

Norwalk also canceled its Oyster Festival scheduled for Saturday night due to the storms.People who bought a ticket for Saturday can use them for entry to the festival on Sunday, according to the Norwalk  Seaport Association.

Trees and wires are down throughout town in Fairfield, all railroad underpasses have flooded and several roads are closed, the Fairfield Police Department tweeted just after 4 p.m. Saturday. The department cautions motorists to drive carefully and to avoid crossing the flooded railroad underpasses.

About 2,343 people in Torrington were without power as of 4:31 p.m. and by 6:11 p.m. it was down to 91, according to the Connecticut Light & Power outage map. CL&P said that the power outages and downed wires in the area are likely weather-related.

The mixture of the present heat and humidity and a cold front moving in could create stronger storms in western Connecticut up to 8 p.m., according to NBC Connecticut First Alert Meteorologist Monica Cryan.

The thunderstorm threat will last through the evening,  NBC Connecticut First Alert Meteorologist Darren Sweeney said. Storms could bring heavy rain, posing a flooding risk, as well as small hail and damaging winds, he said.

Hot weather is also expected on Sunday, between 75 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit, but the humidity will likely drop.

Skies have begun to clear, but rain fell hard and fast across much of the state earlier today, dumping more than 5 inches over Norwalk and surrounding towns, according to Chief Meteorologist Brad Field.

Flash flood warnings were issued for northwestern Tolland County and northern Hartford County until 5:30 p.m. and a flash flood watch remains in effect for Windham County until 8 p.m.

Rain fell at a rate of 1-3 inches per hour in southeastern Connecticut this morning, then moved north toward the Massachusetts border. Field said most of the precipitation is over for us, but we could see a few more localized rain or thunder showers coming in from the west. 

Heavy rainfall flooded streets along the shoreline, washing out First Avenue in West Haven, Beach Avenue in Milford and the Madison Golf Club, among others. Some areas of the state saw more than a month's worth of rain in just a few short hours.

Towns that haven't seen flooding at this point are no longer at risk, Field said.

Long Island was hit the hardest, receiving a record 13.88 inches of rain that had many neighborhoods underwater, according to Meteorologist Ryan Hanrahan.

Local fire officials said the drainage system is designed to handle 5 inches of rain over 24 hours and was completely overloaded. Some residents said their homes flooded for the first time today.

The weather caused travel problems in parts of the state. John Harrington, a Cromwell resident who followed Interstate 91 into Enfield at the height of the storm, said he saw a number of cars hydroplane on the highway. Visibility and road conditions were poor.

Bradley International Airport also reported flight delays Wednesday afternoon.

The National Weather Service reminds motorists to avoid roads covered with water because they may be deeper than expected.

Thunderstorms brought down trees and wires as they moved through parts of Fairfield County this evening, leaving thousands without power in Ridgefield and Norwalk.

A severe thunderstorm warning was in effect until 5:45 p.m. as a storm cell moved southeast across the New York border.

According to Norwalk police and The Ridgefield Press, fallen trees and downed wires led to significant power outages in the area.

At one point, Connecticut Light & Power reported more than 1,500 outages in Ridgefield and 1,400 in Norwalk.

Metro-North's Danbury Branch replaced one train with a shuttle bus Wednesday evening while crews worked to clear fallen trees from the tracks in Wilton, according to an email alert from the railroad.

The storms have now passed and we should see clear skies tonight, with temperatures in the upper 50s.
