GREENWICH, Conn. (WTNH) -- early all of Greenwich was in the dark Monday afternoon after a storm struck the town, proving mother nature doesn't care if you live in a multi-million dollar home.
Sunday's storm left a slew of damage across Greenwich, where trees were down in wires and on the roads.
"The wind was the big story. The clouds got real ugly and almost looked like a tornado-type clouds, the color of them and everything," said Keith Kockenmeister. "It was pretty scary for 15 minutes or so."
The 25 mile an hour overnight winds uprooted a tree and severed a gas line, forcing temporary evacuations along Shore Road. On Gilliam Lane, branches brought down poles.
"I was driving back after the storm and I started to see all the lines down, and the trucks and I said 'I'm going to be without power,' but as I drove down the street I started to hear the generators," said Jenny Baird.
At the height of the storm, over 60 roads in town were closed. Crews were working to clear them as fast as they could, but it all meant a tougher than usual Monday morning commute.
"Back to work," Kockenmeister said. "Coming in now, unfortunately. Coming in, don't worry."
Private crews were hired by homeowners to clear driveways. Some branches just missed high end SUVs parked along the road. Along the waterfront, boats were pushed on top of one another.
However, residents have been through this before. Many endured long outages during Tropical Storm Irene and the October Nor'easter.
"Here is the most affluent zip code I've ever lived in and I've never lived in a place that loses power so often," Baird said.
The damage proves that the zip code doesn't matter to mother nature.
