Does anyone have pictures of the beach area - Fairfield Beach Club, Jennings and so forth ? How bad is the flooding?

Steve -- there are some pictures of Fairfield Beach Road in the gallery above. Police posted more than 200 photos on Facebook they took while making damage assessments today - Here's the link: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.413160518737214.99679.379653075421292&type=1

Parts of Fairfield Beach after Hurricane Sandy. Pretty wobbly camera here and I apologize for the change of direction in the camera half way through. But, you get the jist... pretty crazy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6cWEVsCHcVs

Thank you! Thank you, Maione's restaurant for serving the Stratfield area last night. After running out of pizza dough around 6pm, you all kept smiling and working hard in the face of hungry and tired customers. You all kept your composure no matter how many times you had to say "No pizza dough." My family sincerely appreciated your hard work and delicious food.

My heart goes out to all of the families affected by the storm, especially the residents of the beach area. Nothing was spared at all, but to see neighbors helping each other, laughing, smiling, some crying but trying to be hopeful, while cleaning up total devastation reveals the strength of the human condition. Bravo! Many thanks to the FPD, FFD, DPW, National Guard and residents of Fairfield who are helping each other to make Fairfield the best it can be under such difficult times! Very touching, very needed.

We're in Southport, and our power came back on yesterday around 1pm. I just want to say thank you to UI for giving us our heat and electricity back, and more quickly than predicted.

Thanks Caitlin for the link to the photos. Pre-hurricane we all were told it would be bad at the beach, but I didn’t realize just how bad until I saw these pics. I was without power until just before midnight on Saturday, so hadn’t seen any news about the extent of the damage. Being in the dark for 6 nights isn’t bad, after seeing how Sandy devastated not only beach residents, but people just near the beach. I’ve lived in Fairfield for 45+ years, and I’ve never seen it this bad. .
