Gov. Malloy, Sen. Blumenthal Tour Clinton After Hurricane Sandy

The governor, senator and other officials walk the beach area of Clinton to see first-hand the damage and destruction caused by Hurricane Sandy.


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.

Now you can see. The road has been closed to everyone except residents so workers can fix the road. There are a few photos in the video that show the destruction.

I missed that today when I was at apartment cleaning this afternoon . Yesterday I got to meet Joe Courtney down there. Glad that they came around to meet the residents and see what the storm caused.

Nancy - sometimes videos are tricky on phones. The video will be up on the Clinton Patch for eternity, so you can view it once you get power to your computer or laptop.

Our family member lives on Commerce St. Clinton about 2 blocks from the water - I think it is Long Island Sound. We think she is with other family members further away from the water but not sure. Any word on Commerce St. ? Karen - Washington state
