Hurricane Sandy, which some are now calling a “super-storm,” seems to have left the Westport area as of Wed. evening. However, the storm wreaked an enormous amount of damage on the town and its surroundings.

According to Connecticut Light & Power Co. (CL&P), as of 5:25 p.m. Tues. night, 10,581 Westport customers — around 85% — lack power. First Selectman Gordon Joseloff has criticized CL&P’s response to restoring power.

“I’m appallingly disappointed by CL&P’s response,” said Joseloff at a press conference this afternoon.

CL&P was criticized following Hurricane Irene in mid-2011 for what many viewed as a slow response to restoring power to its customers.

Schools have been closed for Wed. by Superintendent Elliott Landon. No word has been released yet on further school closings.

The following photos were taken at a variety of locations around Westport that have been significantly altered or damaged by the hurricane.
