Weather Advisory for 6/5/16 through 6/8/16

Weather Advisory 1

Due to the threat of severe weather, transit agencies are prepared for the worst. If in the event that transit services become suspended, please make sure to have alternative arrangements made so that you are not left stranded at a particular place.

Tropical system to impact Florida

During the course of Sunday, June 5 through Tuesday, June 7 (and possibly even Wednesday, June 8), much of the state of Florida will be impacted by a tropical system that formed in the Caribbean a few days ago. This system will be bringing lots of rain, which in-turn will bring forth the threat of widespread flooding. As streets and tracks become impassible, transit agencies will begin to modify transit services so that the safety of customers and employees are not compromised. This includes placing bus routes on detour, and suspending bus and train service altogether if necessary. Please be mindful that during detour operations, some bus stops will be skipped and real-time arrival predictions will not be accurate.

For the latest information; please contact your transit agency or visit their website. You should also monitor transit agency social media accounts and reports from local news outlets.

Widespread flooding continues to impact Paris

Over the week, many parts of Europe have been faced with rain events of their own. Much of Paris, France along the Seine have been flooded, resulting in the closure of many popular tourist spots and intermittent suspension of transit services. While the subway system has been largely spared by the flooding, some sections and stations are subject to closure due to their depth and proximity to the rivers and other flood spots. Some bus routes are also either being detoured or have been suspended until further notice due to impassible streets.

The train lines most impacted within Paris include subway lines 4, 7, & 10, and commuter rail lines B, C, D, & E. All other rail lines operated by the RATP are reporting normal service otherwise.

For the latest information; please contact your transit agency or visit their website. You should also monitor transit agency social media accounts and reports from local news outlets.

#StormMode

As a result of the weather event here in Florida, I will be entering #StormMode at 7:00PM on Sunday, June 5. During this time, I will suspend my normal social media and blog posting activities and instead post weather and transit service interruption information whenever possible. I will exit #StormMode when weather conditions have improved enough to allow transit agencies to operate normal service.
