NEW YORK (AP) - Thousands of riders were left stranded when a line of strong storms pushed across New York City and badly disrupted the evening commute.

Metro-North says the Hudson, New Haven and Harlem+ lines have resumed normal service after being suspended earlier due to downed trees on the tracks.

The commuter railroad says passengers should expect residual delays.

Pictures posted on social media showed concourses at the terminal jammed with stranded passengers.

The sky over the city turned black as the storm rolled in.

The three major airports serving the city were all experiencing flight delays of an hour or more.

Upstate, the storm downed numerous trees and power lines in Westchester, Putnam, Sullivan and Orange counties. The three utilities that serve the area reported over 133,000 customers without power late Tuesday.
