Governor Dannel Malloy, Senator Richard Blumenthal and other state and town officials toured Shore Road in Clinton the afternoon of October 31 to see, up close and personal, the damage brought on by Hurricane Sandy.
Also in attendance were State Senator Eileen Daily, State Representative Jim Crawford, Clinton First Selectman Willie Fritz, Clinton Selectman Tom Vicino, and Clinton Police Chief Todd Lawrie, among others.
Shore Road was a prime example of the strength of the hurricane which moved decks, sheds, and other structures across a lawn and across the street. There were piles and piles of sand and debris that had washed up in yards and on the roads. Some houses suffered much damage, others will require general cleanup.
It was a hurricane that spared hardly a surface.
