New London - Ocean Beach Park announced on its Facebook page before noon Friday that the park would be closing its gates due to lightning, strong currents and "nothing but bad stuff ahead so we will be locking the park to keep everyone, including our employees, safe."

David Sugrue, the manager of the park, emphasized that the "Don't come" announcement was a first for the park but suggested that Saturday and Sunday would be good weather and an opportunity to enjoy the beach.
