Strong thunderstorms moved through the area Tuesday afternoon and caused some damage in the Colchester area.
According to the Twitter account of the town's First Selectman, a home was struck by lightning on West Road, and a tree brought some wires down along New London Road.
As a result of the wires being brought down, Route 85, also known as New London Road, was closed so emergency crews could clear the scene.
No injuries have been reported.
