Water floods NYC commuter tunnels, subways
(AP) - The Metropolitan Transportation Authority said waters have surged into two major commuter tunnels and into subway stations and tracks.
Spokesman Kevin Ortiz said the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel and the Queens Midtown Tunnel had both had flooding. It was unclear how much water had come in.
The MTA also cut power to some subway tunnels in lower Manhattan, after water came into the stations and tracks.
Ortiz said the MTA couldn't say at this point how much damage had been done, and how much time it would take to restore everything to normal.
