FAIRFIELD, CT (WFSB) -
Fairfield officials focused Wednesday on getting people out of their homes because many of them were still surrounded by water.
Search and rescue teams arrived in the area to go into areas inaccessible because of standing water and high levels of sand.
So far, more than 20 people have been helped out of their homes because the water from the tidal surge. Three people were rescued Wednesday alone.
"It's shock - it's shocking," said Lindsay Smith of Fairfield. "We knew it was going to be bad, worse than (Hurricane) Irene but I don't think we expected it to this level."
Cleanup in Fairfield has not begun.
Residents tried to pull a home out of the water with boats and their docks after it had gotten caught in the tide. The home has been banging into items during its travels.
"Once, we get down we'll see what the true damage is," Smith said. "I think we'll just come together as a community."
Police Chief Gary MacNamara said they can't even focus on securing the floating house because there are so many other issues.
FEMA officials accompanied Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman and other state officials as they visited the area Wednesday to assess the damage throughout the town.
Wyman said federal assistance has been requested and she is confident that it will be granted, even with so many states requesting it such as New Jersey and New York.
"They need help because they are bigger states," Wyman said. "We're concentrating on getting the help we need."
Eyewitness News rode with the Fairfield Police Department on their boat to get a closer look at some of the damage on one side of town. Homes were rearranged, crushed or just gone.
Five or six have been completely destroyed and about a dozen homes have serious damage to the point where each is at a loss. There are 25 homes that were hit by trees.
In other areas of Fairfield, people who did not leave their homes before the storm because they usually don't flood were unable to drive out themselves.
"They can walk down here, the area you can't see down there still has water in it," MacNamara said. "We have four boats there to take people out as requested."
Trees and electrical wires are down and litter is in roads and yards, adding to the headache for people living along the coast after the massive storm.
"When we have 40 feet oak trees across road with 6 to 8 feet. It takes a while to cut these up," said Brandon Keppler of Warrensburg Tree Service Company
School has been canceled for the rest of the week.
"When you live by the beach, this is what you get," said Kathy Coleman of Fairfield.
