The gusty winds, falling trees, and wild weather brought to the region by Tropical Storm Isaias has forced Metro-North to suspend service due to the hazardous conditions.
The MTA announced that Metro-North service on the Hudson, Harlem and New Haven Lines is currently suspended as of 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 4 due to high winds and the conditions caused by the storm.
According to MTA, service will resume “as soon as conditions safely allow.”
Earlier in the day, the MTA had cautioned that travel plans should be arranged by the early afternoon in the event Tropical Storm Isaias struck sooner than expected.
“With Tropical Storm Isaias expected to impact the New York and Connecticut region earlier than expected, we urge our customers to plan to complete their travel by early afternoon,” they posted. “Travel may be subject to service disruptions and lengthy delays. Train cancellations and combinations are possible.”
