WEST HAVEN, Sept. 3, 2021 — (Pictured): Mayor Nancy R. Rossi on Thursday, Sept. 2, assesses the destruction at Lake Street Beach off Ocean Avenue caused by heavy rain from the remnants of Hurricane Ida.

The storm dumped 6.27 inches of rain in West Haven on Wednesday night, Sept. 1, into early Thursday morning. Stormwater runoff carved out an estimated 40-foot-wide, 8-foot-deep valley in the beach.

Rossi plans to work with state leaders to secure emergency relief funding to replenish the washed-out beach with new sand.
