Service cancellations on several rail lines out of New York City's Grand Central Terminal prompted some major travel delays on Tuesday evening as thunderstorms moved through the area.
The late-afternoon Tuesday storm brought damaging wind, huge hail and pop-up tornadoes to the area.
"Customers are asked not to enter Grand Central Terminal until train service can be restored".
"For safety of the people who were in the terminal", he added.
Wednesday morning, the city and its transit systems had mostly rebounded from the storm, but Metro-North still had delays.
The Harlem line was the only route still suspended, as of 7 p.m., according to the MTA.
Hudson Branch Line: Customers face delays. Officials says that limited service is anticipated between Poughkeepsie and Croton-Harmon on the Hudson Line, and limited service is anticipated between Southeast and North White Plains on the Harlem Line.
The commuter railroad says passengers should expect residual delays.
Damage also remains across the area, and people and drivers are warned to stay away from downed wires.
