NEW YORK — With a powerful, fast moving winter storm that could bring more than a foot of snow on the Tri-State area, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said there were no major delays on mass transit and that he doesn’t expect to close down the Long Island Rail Road or subways, CBS New York reports.

Some New York City subway lines were running with delays because of signal and switch troubles. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority said bus service was running with delays across all five boroughs and some had to be detoured because of icy roads.

The storm is also impacting Long Island, N.Y.’s NICE, NJ Transit, and other agencies in the northeast. For the full story, click here.
