Almost a month after Superstorm Sandy hit the region, thousands of Connecticut residents are still in need of help, federal and state officials said today.

Speaking at a federally designated Disaster Recovery Center in downtown Bridgeport, FEMA administrator Craig Fugate promised, “We will not stop until everyone’s life is back to normal.”

More than 300 FEMA staff members are on the ground in Connecticut, Fugate said: “How long is FEMA going to be here? We’re going to be here a while…we’re talking years.”

Close to 10,000 residents have asked for help from the federal government in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, and about $8.5 million has been distributed to them. That does not include claims made by larger businesses or by local governments and government agencies.
