WOLCOTT, Conn. (WTNH) – In the town of Wolcott the sounds of a tornado could be heard early Sunday afternoon. What also could be heard that day were chainsaws, as people worked to clean up the damage caused by the high winds.

“We actually already had to call CL&P,” said Pamela Bisaillion, whose property was damaged as a result of the tornado. “The power lines were down, into the tree into the camper and all   that, called them, called the insurance company, we had to call to obviously have the tree removed because there is big hole in the roof.”

Pamela and her family live on Kalko Drive, one of the hardest hit areas from the rotating winds. Other spots that received significant  damage include Minor Road, Deer Run Drive, and the Wolcott High School Baseball field. Most of the destruction outside the home of the Bisaillion family was limited to uprooted trees and broken branches, however, based on our observations it did also appear as though the outfield fence at the High School’s baseball field had been blown over and its batting cage looked torn and twisted.

Wolcott Police tell News 8 no one was injured in the tornado.
