Among the most damaged areas are Farmington and Wethersfield, both of which experienced intense winds, trees toppling into houses, and blocked roadways.

Numerous homes in the areas of Church Street and Nott Street in Wethersfield were damaged by hail and falling tree limbs.

One home on Church Street was sliced, nearly in half, by a large tree.

The town of Wethersfield opened the Pitkin Community Center as an emergency shelter Friday night.

Police are advising spectators to stay away from town, as trees and power lines are still causing hazards.

The upper parking lot at Silas Deane Middle School has been turned into a makeshift transfer station where residents can bring storm debris for pickup.

Governor Rell also visited areas ravaged by the storm Saturday morning.

More than half of Farmington and Wethersfield remain without power Saturday morning, and at the height of the storm nearly 40,000 people lost electricity.

Along with many local businesses, Westfarms Mall is closed while Connecticut Light and Power crews work to restore power.

A spokeswoman says they plan to reopen by Saturday afternoon.
