According to the Westport Family Y blog:
Work continued today at the Family Y, as part of a multi-faceted effort to restore basic operations.
A tanker truck is onsite, serving as a “mega shop vac” to suction up water from the sub-basement areas of the facility. It is composed of 5 separate buildings — some dating to 1923 — and linked together by a labyrinth of passageways and stairwells below street level.
A heavy-duty generator arrived at 9:30 this morning, as Y staff and service partners attempt to resupply parts of the building with power. A priority is getting electricity restored at least to power the phone lines and reboot the servers that run the Y’s email system.
Clean up of the lower-level Child Care Center continues, with much of the water-damaged school supplies to be discarded. Tasha Dennison, the Y’s senior director of Child Care and School Age Programs, toured her classrooms this morning in an effort to begin the process of taking inventory and reordering key material and furniture. All was not lost, but close to it.
No schedule has been set as of today for reopening parts of the building to Y members and the community. The process to “rebuild what matters” will require much effort on the part of Y employees and volunteers and our service partners and sub-contractors. We ask for your continued patience and prayers, and thank you for your support.
