Cleanup efforts are still underway in Weston today after half the town remains without power following Tropical Storm Isaias.
Town officials say the storm came in fast and that it hit hard.
"Our communication center, literally from the beginning of the storm, has had thousands of calls come in to them," Sgt. Joe Miceli says.
Miceli is also the emergency management director for Weston, and he says of the nearly 150 road closures, every road is now passable.
The Connecticut National Guard was deployed to the town Friday to help Public Works crews clear roads.
However, more than half the town is still without power nearly a week later.
Officials say it also took six days for Weston High to get power back, which is where residents were supposed to be able to come come cool off and shower.
Eversource officials say residents who are still in the dark should have their lights back on by Tuesday night.
Officials say there are charging stations outside Weston High School, the library, and the Westport-Weston Health District.
