BOSTON (AP) - Thousands were without power in central Connecticut and scattered damage reported across southern New England after storms that led to tornado warnings in Massachusetts.

The storms left about 50,000 with power in Connecticut Tuesday afternoon. North Haven police said they believe a microburst or small tornado damaged several homes on the town’s west side and downed trees and power lines. No injuries were reported.

Scattered tree and power line damage also was reported in southeastern Massachusetts where tornado warnings were issued. There were no confirmed touchdowns.

New storms triggered by an advancing cold front marched across western Massachusetts and Connecticut on Tuesday evening, with no reports of serious damage.

A tornado watch was cancelled for most of Massachusetts at mid-evening. It remained in effect until 11 p.m. for southeastern Massachusetts, eastern Connecticut and Rhode Island.
