Thousands of Westchester and Connecticut commuters will not be going to work today as service on the Hudson, Harlem and New Haven lines of Metro-North Railroad remains suspended. The trains cannot operate on any of the three lines due to significant damage to many portions of the Metro-North system. The signal system is not fully functioning on any of the three lines and trees have fallen on the tracks on all three lines as well.
Local streams and the Bronx River continue to overflow their banks and crews are working to clean up three mudslides. See the dramatic photo of a mudslide at Sputen Duyvill on the Hudson Line where a retaining wall gave out. In addition to flooding in Scarsdale and Hartsdale, Metro-North reports significant water on the tracks in Tuckahoe. Check out the photo of the Tuckahoe station at 3 pm on Sunday where tracks were flooded with up to four feet of water from the overflowing Bronx River.
Metro-North’s goal is to restore as much service as possible as soon as it is safe to do so, however they have not said when they expect the system torestart the system. According to their website, “employees and equipment must be in place before any level of service can begin.”
