New London remains under the parking ban rules used during winter storms and a number of streets will be kept closed as emergency responders begin to assess damage from Hurricane Sandy.
The parking ban prohibits people from parking in the downtown area. Downtown residents may park in the Water Street Parking Garage.
"We are urging all residents, specifically in the south end of town, to stay off the road," Mayor Daryl Finizio's office said. "When residents are out of their homes, they are hindering emergency personnel and work crews from fully assessing damage and clearing debris."
