Officials in New Haven County are still trying to assess the damage caused by Sandy on Tuesday.
In New Haven, 50 streets were blocked off with many of the sidewalks unsafe for pedestrians and children. Schools remain closed for Wednesday and could be closed again on Thursday.
"The storm lasted only a few hours, but the cleanup will last far longer. United Illuminating 'Make Safe' crews are currently working to de-energize fallen power lines throughout the city," said Mayor John DeStefano Jr. "Until that can occur, city tree crews cannot begin to remove entangled trees that may be blocking public streets and sidewalks."
Officials in East Haven said three houses have been destroyed and as many as six could have been severely damaged. During Hurricane Irene, more than a dozen homes were destroyed.
East Haven officials said the lower amount of damage is because there were more tides with higher surges, but the waves were less intense. The water level is two feet higher than Hurricane Irene.
Gov. Dannel Malloy surveyed the damage in East Haven and offered his condolences to homeowners Tuesday afternoon.
"We lost a wall over here and the doors are all bashed up for the garage," said Dawn Boulas, who is a homeowner in East Haven. "We got about four inches of water inside the house and a lot of mud."
A curfew is being enforced in East Haven starting at 7 p.m. Officials want people to stay in their homes and do not want a lot of people on the roads. Only residents with proper identification can get down on the waterfront.
The National Guard has helped get about 12 people out of their homes.
"I packed up my house last night and I took everything out of it because I knew this was going to happen," said Al Cody, whose home flooded. "When you live down here you know, you know what's going to happen."
In Milford, eight homes on Hillside Avenue have collapsed, 24 homes were damaged on Shorefront Road between Ann Street and Woodfront Avenue and three homes on Bayshore Drive also sustained severe damage. More than 100 homes have been structurally compromised, according to Mayor Benjamin Blake.
"Every single inch of our shoreline was decimated," he said.
Milford residents are being asked to conserve water because the sewage treatment plants do not have power. FEMA has been contacted, since it is believed there has been tens of millions of dollars of damage.
Residents are also being advised to walk around their homes completely and if the home is unsafe to enter, they should not do so, until a building inspector can examine it.
"Police is warning residents to be cautious of fraudulent contractors who may attempt to scam money from homeowners by offering services, taking a deposit for the service and not coming back to complete the work," according to release from Milford police.
In West Haven, emergency crews have dealt with 30 trees into houses, 13 water rescues, five building fires and seven transformer fires.
In Guilford, the town Green had multiple large trees that were uprooted by Sandy. Residents spent Tuesday afternoon taking pictures of the damage.
