WESTPORT — More than 200,000 customers went without power for a second day, and some local roads remained blocked by trees as Hurricane Sandy cleanup crews worked Tuesday to clear flooded areas, unclog debris-strewn roads, and repair power lines.

Overall, damage was relatively modest, and state officials expressed relief that the area was spared the vast destruction that struck the New York and New Jersey coasts.
