Flooding in Metro-North stations

The Tuckahoe train station on the Metro-North railroad was 4-5 feet under water yesterday afternoon after the Bronx River overflowed its banks. Don’t see how anyone will be able to commute to work over the next few days. Its three lines, Hudson, Harlem and New Haven are all out because of Hurricane Irene.

Unclear when they’ll be back up and running again. The MTA website says there is “significant damage to many portions” of the system and that the signal system is not fully functioning on any of the three lines.

Grand Central is reportedly strangely quiet with the Metro-North service suspended, although probably not as quiet as before the storm.

Update as of 5:24p.m. ET: The Metropolitan Transportation Authority resumed full rail service on its New Haven and Hudson lines, and was running Harlem trains as far north as White Plains.
