GREENWICH - Greenwich First Selectman Peter Tesei says a preliminary estimate of the town's nor'easter damage comes to approximately $800,000.

Tesei submitted the estimate to the state Monday, but the first selectman expects the total cost to grow following a more thorough review.

The estimated costs include overtime for police, fire and public works crew, as well as the replacement of a damaged police cruiser. Officials are yet to determine what it will cost to repair sidewalks, streets and buildings damaged in the storm.

Tesei says FEMA will likely establish temporary offices in Greenwich if the town receives federal assistance.
