Did you lose a tree in your yard? A few branches? Post pics here!
Did you wake up this morning to a tree down in your yard? Branches in your driveway? A garden gnome in a place he shouldn't be? We want to see your storm damage pictures! Whether your Halloween ghost traveled to the neighbor's yard or you saw water get a little too close to your basement, we want to share your photos. Upload your photos to this gallery here by clicking the green "upload photos" button. We also have a photo gallery posted on pictures taken during the storm. The pics include a group of neighbors posing near a fallen tree they helped remove, and a letter carrier doing his best to carry on the "wind, hail, sleet, snow" tradition of the Pony Express.
On the day following Hurricane turned Tropical Storm Irene, Milford residents started hauling tree debris to the town brush facility, and for those without power, hoped to see some lights on soon.
Milford residents started cleaing up their yards, streets, driveways and kitchens Monday, deciding what was worth saving, what should be thrown out. Several thousand people lost power initially in the storm, and although some had power restored overnight, at least 3,500 homes and businesses remained powerless Monday afternoon. Some of the darkened facilities in Milford included the Milford Town Library, and much of the downtown area. The Milford Highway Department announced it had opened, for free, and until further notice, the use of the town's brush facility. People should take the yard waste from Irene to that facility, on Asylum Street, or to the Transfer Station on Cedar Street.
