NEW YORK (Reuters) - New York and Connecticut commuters will not be able to travel to their jobs in New York City on Metro-North Railroad, which must stay closed because of "significant damage" caused by the hurricane, the railway company said in a statement.

The signal line is not fully functioning on any of the three lines and there is significant flooding at stations and parking lots, as well as mudslides and washouts, Metro-North Railroad said.
