New York City subway service will resume on Thursday in some areas only three days after Hurricane Sandy flooded many tunnels and brought the trains to a halt. Despite the fact that many of the network’s deepest tunnels were flooded by Hurricane Sandy on Monday, the governor of the state of New York, Andrew Cuomo, announced that limited service will be resumed on Thursday.
Restoring the entire network could take a long time as critical electrical equipment could be ruined and track beds could be covered with debris. Authorities say there has never been anything like the damage inflicted by Hurricane Sandy. In New York City's financial district, cars floated in a flooded subterranean basement a day after Hurricane Sandy tore across the East Coast. Two years after hurricane sandy flooded tunnels and the subway system, new york’s infrastructure is still recovering.
Also, corrosive salt water could have destroyed essential switches, lights, turnstiles and the power-conducting third rail. For instance, the South Ferry subway station, at Manhattan’s southern tip, had water up to its ceiling. At least 33 deaths in eight states were reported as Sandy pummeled the East Coast with 80 mph winds and severed power to more than 8.1 million customers, according to The Associated Press. Several of the tunnels beneath New York City’s  East River remained flooded Tuesday, with the head of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority saying it was too early to tell how long it would take to evacuate the water and make necessary repairs. High water made it difficult for inspectors to assess how badly the equipment was damaged by the water. Late this morning, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said there had been at least 10 fatalities in his city and that he expected there would be more reported.


Chances are that the country’s largest city could be deprived of its underground transport system for more time than experts expected. Consolidated Edison reported that 670,000 people in and around New York City had no electricity. Bob McGee, a Con Edison utility official, said that below 39th Street, an area just a few blocks south of Times Square, the city was dark.

Driving through lower Manhattan, NPR's Robert Smith said that south of 30th Street, it was "a little terrifying." "A huge swath of this island has no power," he added. In other places, damage to the system from wind and water caused the local grid to collapse.
He reported standing water in intersections and in subway and commuter tunnels, which hobbled the city's transportation system.
I don't know where the water is right now, but [the tunnel] is impassable." The head of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, Joseph Lhota, said at least seven subway tunnels were impassable.
New York University's Langone Medical Center was forced to evacuate more than 200 patients, including 20 babies in neonatal intensive care, after the backup generator failed, according to The Associated Press.
As Hurricane Sandy headed ashore, where it became an extra-tropical storm, it created a record-breaking 13-foot storm surge, filling low-lying areas with several feet of water.
Steve Nessen of member station WNYC in New York (which is live blogging here) reported that the Coney Island area was devastated.
According to the AP: More than 190 firefighters were trying to contain the blaze in the Breezy Point section and two people suffered minor injuries, a fire department spokesman said.


Monday in an area flooded by the superstorm that began sweeping through the city earlier, officials said. Firefighters told WABC-TV that the water was chest high on the street, and they had to use a boat to make rescues.
They said in one apartment home, about 25 people were trapped in an upstairs unit, and the two-story home next door was ablaze and setting fire to the apartment's roof. Firefighters climbed an awning to get to the trapped people and took them downstairs to a boat in the street.
10 Deaths In New York City, More Expected: At least 10 people were killed in Sandy-related incidents, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg just told reporters. The biggest challenges facing the city now, he said, are restoring the city's mass transit system and restoring the city's power.
The city's subway system, he said, has suffered its worst disaster in the 108 years it's been operating. It will be days, at least, before both systems are up and running again.Copyright 2013 NPR.
