On May 15, 2018, severe storms ripped through the state of Connecticut, devastating several towns. High winds, hail and tornados felled trees and powerlines, leaving many state residents without power and unable to gain access to main roads for several days. Faced with the overwhelming task of clearing the trees and debris from roads, local and state agencies received support from the Connecticut National Guard—the 103rd Airlift Wing responding to the town of Bethany on May 18.
