New York's Metropolitan Transportation Authority will suspend subway service at 7 p.m. today as Hurricane Sandy nears, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said.
The last commuter railroad trains will also leave at that time. And bus service will stop at 9 p.m., he said.
The storm is expected to cause massive flooding and widespread power outages when it hits the East Coast, in full, late Sunday and into the week.
Before that happens, transportation companies and government officials are urging people to plan for the worst.
