The EF-0 tornado, with estimated peak winds of 85 miles per hour, left a path of destruction within minutes, according to the National Weather Service. An EF2 tornado with estimated peak winds of 110 miles per hour moved through a path of 100 yards in Kent. The EF1 storm moved through a discontinuous path of 75 yards in Patterson with estimated peak winds of 100 miles per hour.

A third tornado hit Newburgh in Orange County.

The National Weather Service said an EF1 tornado with an estimated peak winds of 110 miles per hour moved along a 9.5 mile path between Beacon Falls and Hamden.

National Weather Service meteorologists will release more information on the storms later Wednesday.

Steven Price, the director of the county Emergency Management Agency, and representatives of the weather service spent the day examining damage left by Tuesday's thunderstorms.

Tens of thousands of people are without power after Tuesday's strong storms brought violent winds, and in some cases hail, to the region.

Around them were downed trees and power lines, darkened homes and intersections without working traffic lights.
