NORWALK, Conn. (WTNH) -- One Norwalk community is still very much picking up the pieces from Sandy and now they have to get ready for yet another storm.
"The sheetrock has been removed, the insolation sheet rock, and I just got a new furnace yesterday, new duct work, new hot water heater," Hans Linderoth from Norwalk said.
For the Harborview community in Norwalk, where 100 of the 109 homes flooded during Sandy, the latest storm hits right in the middle of residents' recovery efforts.
"We're in total recovery mode. I mean the population's just not going to be here this winter," Linderoth said.
News 8's Ali Reed asked Linderoth, "Because of the damage from Sandy?" He said, "yes, nobody can live here."
One home after another along the shoreline in this one community in Norwalk are completely devastated, unlivable and the folks say how much can they take. They're still very much in repair mode and now this storm approaching is just too much to bear.
"We're pretty sure it's not going to be a water event which is great but it's going to be a wind event so we got the dumpsters off the island and bat down all the hatches and hope the power stays on," Mike Harden of Norwalk said.
This community just had its power restored a little more than 24 hours ago. Today residents were trucking out any loose debris that the newest storm front could pick up and cause even more destruction.
"It's nice because they say New England gets all 4 seasons, we just didn't expect them all at once so snow is just very predictable right now I guess," Harden said.
"You're having a very positive attitude through all this," News 8's Ali Reed said.
"Yea, well, it's all we have. We have little meetings each night, the association, to talk about what our next step is and if you can't laugh about it and move on, what else are you going to do?" Harden said.
If you're stopping to get a cup of coffee or a quick bite to eat today, some of the people who are normally behind the counter may be rallying outside the restaurant.
