Governor Malloy has warned Metro-North commuters that they should not count on the rail system to get to work Monday on a regular schedule after Tropical Storm Irene flooded parts of the rail system.

Malloy said at a news briefing Sunday that delays are inevitable and commuters should find alternate ways to get to work.

Marjorie Anders, a spokeswoman for Metro-North, says Malloy is offering good information. She says numerous rail tracks and parking lots are under water in New York and Connecticut.

Flooding waters touched the third rail that provides power to trains in at least one station.

Power was out at the New Haven Yard because of a tree down. And fallen trees along the Hew Haven line interfered with signal power and blocked road access.
