1876 - A CONNECTICUT HURRICANE

News
NEW-HAVEN, Sept. 15. - A tornado cut a swath through the northern part of the City of Bridgeport about midnight on Thursday. It unroofed several houses and snapped a number of large trees off near the ground. The tornado lasted about three minutes, and was apparently about three hundred yards wide. It was accompanied by a rumbling noise, and the houses in its path shook as if an earthquake was coming.
