Storm causes LIRR service problems

- A powerful storm system that moved across the New York area Monday caused service disruptions on the Long Island Rail Road.

The storm caused signal problems and downed a tree on the tracks.

Service has been restored with residual delays.

The Port Washington Branch was suspended in both directions because of a fallen tree on the tracks east of Flushing.

MTA police officers closed off Penn Station until service resumed.
