NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH)– Just because the snow from this Shoreline Winter Storm has stopped doesn’t mean you won’t experience any problems. News 8’s Noelle Gardner is at the storm desk in the newsroom checking in with towns and cities all across the state to see how things are going this morning.

In New Haven, a parking ban remains in effect downtown so plows can get through and clean up the snow.  The ban went into effect at midnight. New this year are the blue flashing lights. When they’re flashing that means there’s a parking ban.

You will not be able to leave your car on the side of the street within the area enclosed by Howe Street, MLK Boulevard, State Street and Grove Street. Drivers are urged to use the parking garages. If you are in violation, you will be ticketed and towed. The parking ban remains in effect until noon.

The parking ban in New London is no longer in effect as of 8 a.m. Sunday morning.

Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin announced the ban in the capitol city will end at 9 a.m. Sunday morning.

News 8’s Noelle Gardner was on the phone with Lt. Brian Foley with the Hartford Police Department. He tells us how  roads in the Hartford area are, where there’s a parking ban and what do you do if your car got towed in the second video above.
