Lirr, Long Island Rail Road
December 28, 2010 by staff
Lirr, People need to stay in their homes cause of bad weather these days, unless it is absolutely necessary. Roads and sidewalks are covered with snow up to two feet of snow in some places because of the snowdrifts. The storm spent most of the time, but a blizzard warning remains in effect until Monday morning. Con Edison is reporting 7000 outages power throughout the city. All Long Island Railroad service was suspended in both directions due to the weather. There is no word from officials when service is restored. Long Island Expressway is described by authorities as barely passable and people are warned not to drive because of black ice in the region.
The buses are running and make all local stops, but the MTA is warning commuters that buses are slow. Mother Nature also gave a beating to the metro service in the city. The F-Line is suspended between Coney Island-Stillwell Station and the Jay Street-Metro Tech Station in both directions. The M-train was completely suspended in both directions. B-line service in Brooklyn was suspended and the D-train is also looking at suspensions in Brooklyn.
A-Train service was also suspended in parts of Brooklyn, with a 5-train service in the Bronx. From 59th Street in Manhattan to Coney Island in Brooklyn, there is no service N-train. Most other lines are also facing major delays or suspensions and commuters are encouraged to use www.mta.info for more information.
Airport Chaos The situation with airports is catastrophic for many people trying to return home after the Christmas holidays. John F. Kennedy International Airport and Newark Liberty Airport are both closed. LaGuardia Airport is open but no flights took off. Wind gusts up to 60 miles per hour and temperatures well below are stealing impossible conditions at airports. Airports are expected to open at 16 am on Monday, according to the FAA.
