MTA NYC Transit System-Wide Shut Down In Anticipation of Hurricane Sandy
In anticipation of Hurricane Sandy’s arrival, the MTA has been directed by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to begin an orderly shutdown and suspension of all subway, bus and commuter railroad service at 7pm Sunday. “In a situation like this, you prepare for the worst and you hope for the best,” said Gov. Cuomo. Hurricane Sandy, is expected to begin slamming the area overnight with dangerous winds and flooding. MTA chief Jay Lhota said service should be restored by Wednesday.
This afternoon New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg also announced that city schools will be closed on Monday. However, this is all reminiscent of the closures last year for Tropical Storm Irene which didn’t quite live up to the hype.
