All Long Island Rail Road lines are facing delays and cancellations during Tuesday’s morning rush-hour, and more than 1,000 riders were trapped when two trains became disabled due to power issues in a tunnel leading to New York’s Penn Station, according to the MTA.

There was a potential for delays and cancellations during the morning rush due to a third rail power issue in a East River Tunnel, the MTA first reported around 8 a.m.
