Bridgeport, Connecticut, is under a state of emergency after severe weather swept through the area, Mayor Bill Finch said on Twitter Thursday afternoon.
Weather data showed winds up to 75 mph, said CNN meteorologist Sean Morris. It was not immediately clear if the winds were from a tornado or strong thunderstorm, he said.
The National Weather Service is characterizing the storm as a thunderstorm. It reports wind damage with "extensive tree damage".
The Bridgeport Police Department confirms the storm caused significant damage.
