WATERBURY, Conn. (WTNH) — Folks are still cleaning up on Saturday after violent weather hit Waterbury on Friday night.

Part of this tree snapped and fell on Piedmont Street.

“This was very scary. When the storm cam and I saw the tree come down, I thought it was going to hit the house,” said Kathleen Casetta. A tree fell on her pool.

Later, a man who was checking damage to a neighbor’s garage described how the violent weather hit while he and some buddies were playing cards.
