PENFIELD BEACH - Fairfield was hit hard by the storm that blew through the region last night, and some coastal roadways experienced flooding.

Crews from the department of public works were out cleaning Sunday after 3 feet of water washed up onto Fairfield Beach Road at Penfield Beach, bringing sand and debris.

Officials say the cleanup at the beach should be finished today and shouldn't affect contractors from coming in on Monday to work on the pavilion project there.
