Parking Lot Turns to Sandbox

Costa Azzurra Restaurant's parking lot was so filled with sand, bulldozers had to be brought.

One of the worst hit places in Devon seems to be Costa Azzurra restaurant on Broadway. It's parking lot essentially turned into a sandlot.

Irene's winds blew mounds of sand and mud and scattered rocks into Livio Faustini's Italian restaurant and banquet facility's parking lot. His back deck overlooking the sound was also leveled.

"I have never seen anything like this (in 40 years)," Faustini said as he shook his head.

Please learn the boundaries of the neighborhoods in Milford. The Costa Azzurra is in a neighborhood that is now referred to as "West Shore", a conglomeration of beaches that used to have separate names. Devon's borders are the Housatonic River, the railroad tracks, Liberty Rock, and the creek that runs by the VFW on Naugatuck Avenue. Devon does not have any Sound shoreline. .

The other pics are from Walnut Beach near the boardwalk, not Costa Azzurra. So, Walnut Beach is not considered Devon? It gets a bit confusing with all of the beaches in Milford. Thank you so much for your info. I am making notes of all of it.
