BROOKLYN - The city's Office of Emergency Management issued a rush-hour hazardous travel advisory Tuesday night as a new storm began to bear down on the borough.

The next round of winter weather is expected to hit overnight and city officials raced to prepare in advance for the storm.

At the MTA, a spokesperson says the transit agency has crews working to de-ice trains and put chains on bus tires. The agency is advising travelers to check their website for delays before heading out for the morning commute.

The Department of Sanitation will be out in full force as crews work overtime to keep streets safe.
