The MTA finds itself, once again, shutting down its entire network again as winter storm Juno bears down on the Northeast. Make sure you get home before then or find yourself in a secure location if you’re not able to make it home in time.
Beginning at 11PM, ALL MTA SUBWAY LINES AND BUSES WILL BE SHUT DOWN as well as commuter rail lines, on Metro North and the LIRR.
- States of emergency have been declared for New York City and surrounding counties;
- New York City schools will be closed tomorrow;
- New York City Parks are closed as of 6pm this evening;
- Also from 11 pm on tonight, no non-emergency vehicles will be permitted on New York City streets, and according to the Mayor, “that is going to be the policy until we state otherwise”
No word as of yet when public transit and mass transit services will be restored as well as when we can expect to be able to operate non-emergency vehicles but you can always log onto Welcome2TheBronx and check the sidebar on the left with all transit status updates.
Also, the National Weather Service has issued a coastal flood warning for the Bronx and Northern Queens between 3AM and 7AM tomorrow morning as gale force winds are predicted for the Long Island Sound, East River, Hudson River, New York Bay, Eastchester Bay and other bodies of water in the immediate NYC area. Vulnerable communities like City Island, Throggs Neck, Soundview, Country Club, Locust Point, Harding Park, Clason Point, Castle Hill, Spencer Estates, Edgewater Park, and any area near the coast should be particular vigilant at conditions and exercise extreme caution during the coastal flood warning period.
