    The National Guard will bring people by their homes in Fairfield on Friday.

    Any Fairfield resident who would like to view his or her property on Fairfield Beach Road, West of Reef Road, were able to on Thursday and will be able to take a tour on Friday as well. 

    The National Guard will offer tours from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Residents will not be allowed inside their homes, but will be able to see if their homes are standing. The Guard will remain in the area to secure the evacuated answers.

    Residents should meet at the Sherman Green parking lot on Reef Road and a military vehicle will transport them to Fairfield Beach Road for a brief opportunity to view their property.

    Call the Storm Recovery Info Line at 203-254-4899 for more details and restrictions.

    "It's hard to put into words. What we said was, we mourn for a couple of days and we're going to move on. That's all you can do is move on. We're resilient, so we'll get through it," Michael Ferrara, of Fairfield, said on Thursday.

    Residents have to go to a checkpoint and show identification.

    Ludlowe High School will close as a shelter today. People who remain there can relocate to the shelters in Norwalk or Bridgeport. 

    Officials on Thursday said they are concerned about a possible East Coast storm next week.

    For residents who have begun to clean up, the Public Works Transfer Station and Green Cycle will be open on Friday morning and throughout the weekend, from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

    "We understand the struggles created by hurricane “Sandy” and thank you for your patience during this trying time. We’re all in this together, working as hard as we can to get everybody back into their homes as quickly as possible," First Selectman Michael Tetreau said in a statement issued on Thursday evening.
