Powerful snowstorm shuts down above ground NYC subway lines starting at 2 pm

Interim NYC Transit president Sarah Feinberg said announcements will be made throughout the system to alert riders about the closure and officials will weigh whether to make any changes to underground lines.

“Underground service will continue but we could stop that if we have to but there are no plans for that at this time,” Feinberg said during a noon press conference held at the governor’s Midtown office.

City buses will continue to run, but are “subject to suspension depending on the weather,” the governor said.

The worst of the weather is expected to pound the five boroughs, Long Island and the Hudson Valley.

Forecasters warn that the Big Apple could be buried under as much as 22 inches of snow, the largest accumulation totals to hit the city since 2016.

“We’re looking at a long two days here,’ he added, urging New York residents to stay inside.
