SKYWARN 13: DC Metro to reopen at 2 p.m. on limited basis

The Washington area

In Baltimore's Fells Point waterfront neighborhood, some streets near the harbor, normally filled with the cars of residents and visitors, are deserted, Oct. 29, 2012, as city officials ordered cars to be moved from low-lying areas.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Washington area's Metro subway and bus system will reopen at 2 p.m. after making it through the deadly superstorm that's bringing destruction to the East Coast.

Metro announced Tuesday morning that once the system reopens, trains and buses will operate less frequently than usual for a weekday. They'll run at what Metro calls "Sunday service intervals."

Metro plans to resume normal service for the Wednesday morning commute.

Spokesman Dan Stessel says it appears the transit system weathered the storm well. He says there was some water infiltration but no significant flooding and few downed trees.

Metro is the nation's second-busiest transit system after New York City based on weekly ridership.
