A mudslide caused by the rain Saturday morning halted travel through Westchester and could threaten Monday’s commute.
Amtrak service between New York City and Albany was canceled and widespread Metro North suspensions continued through Saturday afternoon.
Mounds of dirt, shrubs and trees toppled onto the tracks in Westchester County when the earth near a stone wall of nearby property collapsed, photos obtained by The Post show.
“Due to a track outage issue, all Amtrak service operating between Albany, N.Y. and New York has been canceled for the remainder of the day on Sat. Oct. 21,” Amtrak posted on X, one of multiple service updates throughout the day.
“No substitute transportation is currently available.”
Metro-North’s Hudson Line service between Croton-Harmon and Tarrytown remained suspended as of 4 p.m. Saturday and service in both directions between Grand Central and Tarrytown and between Croton-Harmon and Poughkeepsie was reduced to hourly, the railroad said on X.
Some bus service was provided for the Metro-North lines that were suspended but the railroad recommended using Bee-line buses to and from the Harlem Line, which was running its full schedule.
“Thankfully, there have been no injuries reported and no individuals are stranded in impacted areas,” Gov. Kathy Hochul said in a statement.
“At this point, our top priority is to restore service as quickly as possible,” the governor said.
Hochul added on X that the goal was to ensure that the tracks were cleared for the Monday morning commute.
Strong winds were predicted to continue through the evening, with the possibility of more rain for parts of the region.
