DOVER, Del. (AP)- Life is slowly returning to normal for residents of the southern beach towns of Fenwick Island and Bethany Beach.

The two coastal communities were among the areas in Delaware hardest hit by superstorm Sandy, which left several streets in both towns under water.

But officials and residents said Wednesday that the water has quickly receded. Businesses reopened and residents and public works crews spent the day picking up debris left by the flood waters.

Fenwick Island town manager Merritt Burke IV says some residents will have to replace carpeting and drywall, but that there does not appear to be any major damage to homes.

Bethany Beach Mayor Tony McClenny says he and other residents are lucky that their town did not sustain more damage.
