Will Hurricane Sandy force another shutdown?

Recommended Posts

Will the MTA and other surronding TAs shutdown again during the peak of this storm? Also will the MTA remove trains from Coney Island yard and buses from Far Rockaway due to how close they are to the water.

I would not talk about it any further until we have more information about the MTA's plan or any other TA plans

 

In fact, we don't even know where Sandy will make landfall either near Long Island, NY or Ocean City, MD

Channel 7 contacted the MTA yesterday and they said that they are not planning on shutting the entire system down as of now.

I think they should, it better to be safe then Sorry.

 

Yeah and strand millions of passengers in the process.... Very smart. <_<

 

The logical thing to do is to wait until they know where the storm will hit and then alert the news stations and put up alerts on their website. They can track the storm over the weekend to get a better idea since we're supposed to get the light stuff from it on Sunday.

this weekend no shutdown. remember the shutdown was accompanied by evacuations of the rockaways and low lying areas of coney. in hindsight all that had to be done for irene was shut down the rockaways and terminate at howard beach. the rest of the subway system remained intact other than the plan 5

Yeah, but why would there be one this weekend? The main part of the storm is said to hit Monday & Tuesday, hence my comments about waiting until Sunday to see. By then they should have a good idea where the storm is and if they need to shut down the system. Should be enough time to do all of that too.

Oh well what? They would be having to answer to a lot of people. That would be a very dangerous situation, much like what happened with that snow storm with all of those folks stranded/stuck. I mean most businesses probably haven't even thought about closing Monday & Tuesday so they definitely need to say something if they plan on shutting down the system.

What I meant to say people say should be alerted before the suit down.
