Hurricane Sandy Affects SEPTA, Philadelphia Bridges and Interstates Reopen,
  by: Rebel - Havertown, PA

Major highways in and around Philadelphia are open again after Hurricane Sandy began moving out of the area. Motorists are allowed back on Interstates 95 and 676 as well as the entirety of I-476 and I-76. Speed and vehicle restrictions remain in effect on interstates in central Pennsylvania. The Walt Whitman, Ben Franklin, Betsy Ross and Commodore Barry—also reopened Tuesday.

Much of Philadelphia will remain shut down today, and city officials plan a full assessment of the damage brought by Hurricane Sandy. Mayor Michael Nutter is not optimistic of any SEPTA service coming back on line today. Nutter says do not expect any resumption of SEPTA service until crews conduct a full assessment of facilities, equipment and infrastructure. Whenever the all clear is reached, the first SEPTA service to be restored would be the Market-Frankford El and the Broad Street subway, followed by buses and trolleys. The regional rail lines will not operate today as those trains share tracks with Amtrak, which remains shut down.

Hurricane Sandy cut out power to more than a million customers and is believed to be connected to at least three deaths. An 8-year-old Susquehanna County boy died Monday afternoon when a tree limb fell on him in Franklin Township near Montrose, and a 62-year-old Berks County man died in a house collapse caused by a downed tree in Pike Township near Boyertown. Also on Sunday, an elderly man was trimming a tree in Rapho Township Lancaster County in preparation for the storm when a limb broke and he fell to the ground, sustaining multiple injuries. Statewide, more than 1.2 million electric customers lost power by early Tuesday. Officials warned that Sandy, which lost its status as a hurricane Monday evening, remained a dangerous storm that promised to bring power outages that could last for days.
