LIRR Reducing Service in Advance of Hurricane Irene

Some Friday afternoon trains to the East End being cancelled so crews can prep and secure equipment.

The Long Island Rail Road is making some adjustments to its service in advance of Hurricane Irene, stating that crews need to secure and protect its equipment and infrastructure.

"The LIRR is asking its customers to review their travel plans taking into consideration the impact of the storm," the website states. "Because of the severity of the wind and rain associated with a hurricane, there may be a partial or full shut down of LIRR service prior to the storm making landfall on Long Island to ensure the safety of our customers and employees."
