UPDATE 5:53PM: 5 Service has resumed normal service.

With winds up to 70mph and flooding from the Nor’easter battering The Bronx and the region, transportation is down all across the area.

The 5 train service between E 180th Street and Dyre Avenue remains suspended after a tree fell across the tracks this morning.

A similar situation caused an outage along Amtrak between DC and Boston, subway lines are a mess and the flights are grounded at area airports.
