Product Features
  • Twisters in Connecticut are incredibly rare, but they're often disastrous and sometimes deadly.
  • The Wallingford tornado of 1878 took less than two minutes, but it killed at the rate of one person per second. The Windsor tornado of 1979 destroyed a field of aircraft that had survived World War II. The 1787 Wethersfield tornado ripped off a barn roof in New Britain, traveled on to Newington and finally subsided in Wethersfield after destroying a family farm. Locals remember the 1989 cyclone that ripped through Hamden and cost the state millions of dollars in repairs.
  • Join local author Robert Hubbard as he shares the tales of these natural disasters and those who witnessed them.
