WATERBURY, CT (WFSB) - Just because a tornado watch was canceled in Litchfield County didn't mean the rain and wind eased up.

Channel 3's Early Warning Weather Tracker 2 headed up Route 8 from Waterbury to check out the conditions on Monday morning.

It reported heavy rain and lightning.

State police said in Goshen, Route 272 was closed at Route 263 because of a tree in wires.

In the Town of Sharon, there were reports of trees being down.

The Department of Transportation reported that Route 37 was closed between Osbourne and Hubble Mountain roads because of a tree in wires.

“The wind was whipping," said Chris Hale of Sharon.

Hale said he had his windows cracked at his home when the storm moved through the area. His curtains and carpet were soaked.

“I took the curtains off that corner, that one has to come off, and so do the rest on the bottom floor," Hale said. “I’ve never had anything like that before.”

A tree also landed on his house, but he had no idea until a Channel 3 crew informed him.

“I can’t believe I didn’t hear that," Hale said. “It does not look like it did any damage, thank goodness.”

It missed his truck.

“The limbs fell around the truck instead of on it," he said. "I really did get lucky today.”

Norfolk's public information officer said that while he had no reports of damage, he saw the heavy rain and lighting.

Over in Cornwall, trees also fell on people's properties and in roads.

“I assumed there was some damage, but not that much," said Ira Barkoff of Cornwall. "I’ll have to go around the other way.”
