Metropolitan Transportation Authority officials said six under-river subway tunnels had been penetrated by floods on Monday night, with water in all five tunnels connecting Lower Manhattan to Brooklyn as well as the Steinway Tube between Midtown and Queens.
The authority also reported flooding in the no. 1 train tunnel between from Chambers Street south to South Ferry at the tip of Manhattan, rail yards at 148th Street in East Harlem and at Coney Island, and inside some stations on the hard-hit Rockaways peninsula. The North Channel Bridge was underwater during the storm surge, a spokesman said.
Separately, spokesman for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey said there was “significant” flooding at PATH stations on the New Jersey side of the Hudson River and water at the track level in Hoboken. Other areas were likely to have flooded as well
The World Trade Center station and the adjacent construction site at One World Trade Center also experienced flooding, the Port Authority spokesman said, although there appeared to be no structural damage.
An assessment of the extent of damage to Port Authority property is expected Tuesday morning.
