Wednesday marks the two-year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy, and many are looking back on their memories of that day and the destruction the storm caused in the area.
Kathy Kochi and her husband Dennis have made a habit of walking up and down Fairfield Beach Road and remember the day that Sandy blew in.
They say sandpiles were lined down the block and a house was even pulled into the creek. "I think what I remember most is the personal effects strewn across the streets," Kathy says.
Police and the National Guard were brought in to keep people out of the area. "The hardest part was to keep people away from the beach area until the water receded," says First Selectman Michael Tetreau.
Tetreau says many of the houses that were damaged have now been sold because of new regulations from FEMA. He says others have been knocked down and completely rebuilt. The beach is still very much a construction area.
