New Losses In Cosey Beach After Latest Storm

View Comments

EAST HAVEN, Conn. (AP) _ A Connecticut shoreline city that lost more than two dozen homes to Tropical Storm Irene just over a year ago received another big hit from Superstorm Sandy.

East Haven officials say two homes were destroyed along Cosey Beach and at least four others may have to be condemned because of wind and water damage suffered in Monday’s storm.

Mayor Joseph Maturo says the storm brought flood waters that were up to 2 feet higher than the city saw in Irene. But he says more homes were spared this time around because the wind was not as strong and did not blow as many waves into buildings.
