Summer Weather Awareness in Connecticut

 

Summer is a beautiful time of year in Connecticut with opportunities for summer fun on the Connecticut shoreline, in the mountains of Litchfield County and at the many lakes, rivers and streams across the state. With summer weather and fun comes the risk for severe weather such as flooding, severe storms and tornadoes, hurricanes, tropical storms, and extreme heat. The pages within this section will help you prepare your home, family, and business for potentially severe summer weather while living in or visiting Connecticut.
