Thunderstorms occur on an average of 30 times annually in Connecticut.
Connecticut is prone to severe winter weather. The state can get up to three nor'easters each winter, causing significant flooding along the shoreline. These storms may also bring heavy snowfall and beach erosion.
A fault line that runs from north to south in eastern connecticut is, not surprisingly, the site of three to five minor earthquakes every year.
Tropical storms and thunderstorms are common during hurricane season. In 1999, Connecticut was among a string of states to be affected by the heavy rains of Hurricane Floyd. The storm caused power outages and flood damage across the state.
