Milford residents along the coastline in Connecticut recall the devastation of Superstorm Sandy as Tropical Storm Isaias begins to move into the state.
"That was the absolute worst I'm not just destroyed the tides were up really high, people had antiques floating out of there house and up the street… it was horrendous… water doesn't come up too far were happy," one woman tells News 12.
High tide was 12:34 p.m. in Milford Tuesday, and officials say it's a good thing the tide came early.
Firefighters say if the tide is high now then it will be waning this afternoon when the state gets the majority of the rain and wind from Isaias.
In the meantime, residents were getting in a walk or a swim before the weather turned sour.
They say in this neighborhood, the memory of Superstorm Sandy still lingers.
Isaias is expected to impact Connecticut around 2 p.m. this afternoon through 7 p.m. tonight.
