Town leaders in Fairfield met with families Thursday to explain the help that is available to them.
More than 100 people met in one section of town with local leaders and aired their frustrations.
Many residents were upset that United Illuminating had not shown up in full force. Only one crew was seen in town Wednesday and only a handful of workers were seen Thursday.
"At some point we'll just have to pack and go to family out of state," said a resident who did not want to be identified.
United Illuminating says it expects to restore power to 95 percent of its customers before midnight Monday. As of 8 p.m., 11,194 UI customers were without power in Fairfield.
The state's second largest utility made the promise Thursday morning as 105,999 customers were still without power, three days after Hurricane Sandy caused massive damage in Connecticut and around the Northeast.
Hundreds of trees and electrical wires are down and litter is in roads and yards, adding to the headache for people living along the coast after the massive storm.
This is on top of the more than 300 trees down and the unknown number of homes destroyed.
"We're not in our house right now," said Heather Degregorio of Fairfield. "We have no electrical and heat and we have three little kids."
Dozens and dozens of streets are still underwater. Degregorio's home is in a neighborhood that is under several feet of water.
"Just wasn't going to take the chance there could be live wires, that's another issue," said Terry Jancar of Fairfield.
The water in Degregorio's neighborhood is so deep, she could not inspect the damage. The National Guard was in Fairfield Thursday and helped get people in and out of the flooded areas just so they can see their homes.
Some of the homes are unrecognizable. Five have been washed out to sea.
"We can't even go in there and see what the problems are until the water gets out," said First Selectman Michael Tetreau (D).
Search and rescue teams arrived in the area on Wednesday to go into areas inaccessible because of standing water and high levels of sand.
