Episode Narrative The tornado developed over Gardner Lake in the northern section of Montville, just to the west of St. Thomas Moore Prep School. This is an area of homes along private roads on the eastern shore of the lake. Eyewitnesses reported seeing a wall of water over the lake approaching rapidly and once it hit shore, trees were snapped and water was everywhere. Several trees 2 to 3 feet in diameter in the path of the storm fell in an easterly direction damaging at least 6 cars and the front and side porches of a house. Many of the other trees in the area had their tops twisted off. Winds were estimated at 80 to 90 mph from the damage observed. It appeared from the damage pattern that the tornado quickly lifted.
