NEW CANAAN - One week after a powerful nor'easter walloped southwestern Connecticut, residents are continuing to clean up debris.

Officials in some communities have offered help to residents carting tree stumps, trunks and other storm debris to local dumps. In New Canaan, residents can report damage to the town and possibly qualify for a state or federal reimbursement.

First Selectman Jeb Walker says the town is waiving permit fees and overage charges to town residents for the next 10 days in order to alleviate the cleanup process.

Other areas, like Greenwich, Darien and Westport also ask residents to report their storm damage online or by phone.
