Harlem Subway Staircase Transforms Into Waterfall

April 16, 2018

Patch reports that a Harlem subway station had to be shut down Monday morning due to massive flooding, the MTA announced.

Trains bypassed the West 145th Street and Broadway station in both directions starting shortly before 10:30 a.m., the MTA said on Twitter. The station was flooded during Monday’s storm due to water pouring into the station from the street.

“As happens during heavy storms like today’s, water is entering some stations from the street. We’re sending emergency maintenance teams and customer service staff to locations where they’re needed,” the MTA said in a statement posted to Twitter. “We’ll keep staircases and other station areas open as long as it’s safe to do so, but please be careful as you enter and exit trains.”
