The old Positano’s — and before that, Cafe de la Plage, other restaurants and (way back in the day) grocery stores — was demolished today. Soon, a 4-bedroom home will take its place.

Today’s nor’easter caused havoc throughout Westport. This was the scene at Burying Hill Beach. (Photo/Nico Eisenberger)

Today’s nor’easter damaged this 1915 Compo Cove house. It’s weathered many previous ones too. (Photo/Robin Tauck)

The Nor’easter Missed Us. Still…

We avoided torrential rain. The 50-mph wind gusts never came.

Still, Westport did not escape today’s rains. And — with the moon nearly full — floods were reported all over town.

This is the new normal.

At Parker Harding Plaza, flood gates seem not to have been deployed. Water poured in to the nail salon. (Photo/Chip Stephens)

Additional flooding was reported at Wilton Road and Post Road West; Imperial Avenue near Baker Avenue, and Harbor and Canal Roads on Saugatuck Shores.

Tomorrow should be partly cloudy, with a high near 55. Winds will be 5-10 mph.
