LIRR Service Is Normal Again After Hurricane Missed City
By: NY1 News

With the storm formerly known as Hurricane Earl no longer a threat to the city or surrounding areas, Long Island Rail Road officials say normal service to eastern Long Island has resumed.

Earl is now a Category 1 tropical storm with maximum winds of about 70 mph that hit Nova Scotia, Canada late this morning.

Service was suspended yesterday because of the threat of high winds posed by Earl.

Amtrak has also resumed service between New York and Boston, after it was suspended yesterday after a tree fell on power lines in New London, Conn.

No delays or cancellations are being reported at John F. Kennedy, LaGuardia, or Newark Liberty Airports.

The storm did not do as much damage to New England as originally feared.

It dumped about three inches of rain on Martha's Vineyard. Nantucket got about an inch-and-a-half of rain and beachgoers on the island were told to keep out of the water as winds gusted up to 40 mph.

A few hundred power outages were reported in Massachusetts, along with a handful of downed power lines and isolated flooding in low-lying areas.

Earlier Friday in North Carolina, drivers maneuvered through flooded streets and downed tree branches, though the storm largely spared the Outer Banks.

Thousands of homes lost power during the storm, but there were no reports of injuries or major damage.
