GREENWICH - Crews from the Federal Emergency Management Agency were in Greenwich Wednesday to survey the damage caused by the March 13 nor'easter.

The FEMA team met with police before touring the hardest hit areas, which included spots in Fairfield.

Greenwich First Selectman Peter Tesei says the town has already gathered between 4 and 6 tons of trees and other debris and the cost of the cleanup could top $1 million.

After the damage survey, the state must submit a request for a disaster declaration, which must be reviewed and approved by President Obama.
