State to waive admission at parks

Gov. Dannel Malloy has ordered state parks and beaches waive admission fees this weekend.

However, some beaches were badly damaged and remain closed.

High winds and a storm surge Sunday washed away 100 feet of beaches in some areas.

Silver Sands in Milford and Sherwood Island in Westport were among the hardest hit.

Check your local beaches to see if they've been deemed safe for swimming for the holiday weekend.
