Residents trying to clean up after flooding

FAIRFIELD - Residents are working hard to save their homes and properties after floodwaters in Fairfield left their town looking more like a lake.

One resident, Frank DePinto, who recently purchased his home in Fairfield, says he is trying to pump the waters and will stay up all night if he has to so he can save his new home.

Many residents say they can deal with a little flooding, which doesn't come close to the devastation caused by the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
