The major thunderstorm and possible tornadoes that hit our area have left widespread damage. This morning on the Ethan and Lou show, we leaned on all of you to explain what was happening in your area.

We also managed to get Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton on the phone to talk about what happened, how we go forward, and what to expect. Here's what he had to say:

It looks like we are all going to have to be patient, and wait this thing out. Danbury and its surrounding communities have some necessary digging out to do, and we will do it.

We will pray for the families of those who tragically died as a result of the storm. We will pray for those who were seriously injured. Everyone please stay safe, and please, no one go near any power lines.

P.S. Apologies for the phone quality. It was not our best, but we were working with what we had. I just held Ethan's phone to my mic on.
