Milford Mayor Ben Blake says the high tide Friday morning brought the worst coastal flooding the town has seen since Superstorm Sandy 10 years ago.
Crashing waves from the shoreline flooded into roads. Debris could be seen strewn across the roads.
Nearby residents were advised to move their cars and to stay away to avoid danger.
One resident said he could not get to his house, saying he may have 2 feet of water on his property.
"I was here like around 9:45 and it just started pouring in -- pretty wild. I'm hoping Santa Claus' presents aren't getting wet," he said.
Another man was shuttling people to warmer climate in his kayak.
There is concern that flooded roadways could lead to ice dangers as temperatures drop Friday evening and overnight.
