Hurricane Sandy knocks the New Jersey Transit Rail Operations Center seriously off track. The storm put the center at The Meadowlands - across from New York City - under 8 feet of water, shorting out the back-up power system and emergency generator.
Officials at the commuter railroad say it will be weeks before service resumes on the New Jersey Coast Line because of damage caused by the storm. Downed trees cover the tracks in many areas, ripping down power lines with them, while other sections of track are washed out.
