Superstorm Sandy victims prepare for potential heavy rain, wind (WFSB)
EAST HAVEN, CT (WFSB) -
With another potentially big storm headed for the state, shoreline residents are preparing.
Areas damaged by Superstorm Sandy are especially vulnerable, and residents in East Haven are preparing for anything that could come their way.
While the storm is still days away from landfall, neighbors said the waters are already uncharacteristically angry.
“When it gets this choppy, and you know a storm is coming, then you know you're going to get hit somewhat,” said Margaret Perricone of East Haven. “It goes all the way to the street. Then you got the creek on the other side, coming at you, so we got it from both sides. A lot of water.”
The Perricones are familiar with a lot of water, as they lost their porch during Tropical Storm Irene, and then they elevated their home by 10 feet, sparing them a lot of damage during Sandy.
