BRIDGEPORT - Damage assessors from the Federal Emergency Management Agency were in southwestern Connecticut Monday visiting areas hit hard by a nor'easter two weeks ago.

FEMA had four teams on the ground touring Bridgeport, Westport, New Canaan and Norwalk. Crews also visited parts of Darien, Stamford and Fairfield to add up the damages sustained in public places, as well as private homes and businesses.

In order to qualify for federal aid, the state must show it has sustained at least $4.4 million in damages. FEMA officials aren't sure how long it will take to determine if Connecticut is eligible, but they say they're moving as quickly as possible.
