NWS team to assess storm damage in Conn.

The National Weather Service is sending a team to Connecticut to assess storm damage.

One of the questions they expect to answer is: Did a tornado touch down?

The team will be assessing the damage in Connecticut, particularly the towns of Brookfield, Danbury, New Milford, Newtown, Oxford, Ridgefield, Southbury, Winstead, Bethany, Hamden, Cheshire and Durham.

A meteorologist with the Connecticut Weather Center said data suggests there was a tornado that swept through the area from southern New Fairfield and into Brookfield.

Damage reports along with radar data that shows fast moving wind speeds in opposite directions implies a rotational storm.

A final assessment including results of the survey are expected to be completed by 8 p.m.

The storm survey information will also be available http://www.weather.gov/nyc
