(UPDATE) PHOTOS: Extensive damage across tri-state transit system

A boat found its way onto the tracks at the Ossining Station on the Metro-North Hudson Line.

UPDATE:

The MTA has released more photos and video (screenshots included below) depicting the flooding and damage to the worst-hit transit points in the city, including the Battery Tunnel and the South Ferry subway station.


The entryway to the South Ferry station here shows flood damage to the wall.

The entry to the Battery Tunnel is completely flooded.


Flooding inside the Battery Tunnel, where there is apparently 43 million gallons of water per tube.


Flood waters pouring into the Long Island Railroad’s West Side Yard.


The West Side Yard was flooded from several directions, but a dam put in place the night before protected Penn Station from being deluged as well.

Metro’s original story is below.

MTA workers are facing extensive flooding, fallen trees and wires, and even inconveniently placed boats as they work to get the nation’s largest transportation system back on track.

The photos below are all courtesy of MTA New York City Transit and the Metro-North Railroad.

Metro-North sends diesel-powered patrol trains to survey tracks during and after a storm. As the storm approached on Monday, this train was briefly stopped by a fallen tree.

At dawn on Tuesday, Metro-North again dispatched patrol trains with
chain-saw wielding track workers, signal maintainers, and power
department personnel on all three lines, Hudson, Harlem and New Haven to
carry out track inspections and remove trees along the way. They
encountered massive fallen trees blocking tracks and caught in the
overhead catenary wires that power the trains, often having entirely
torn down the power lines.

One of the patrol trains came across these fallen trees and wires south of New Canaan.


Another patrol train found these trees down south of the Cold Springs station.


Here, at the juncture where the Croton River and the Hudson River meet, the water level has reached height of the Croton River Bridge that carries the Metro-North Hudon line trains.
