NEW YORK — Henri walloped New York this weekend, bringing heavy rain and damaging winds that caused transit disruptions in the area.

With Henri projected to make landfall near Long Island on Sunday, MTA officials preemptively suspended some train service on the eastern end of the island. The MTA also suspended some train service on the Metro-North Railroad.

Flash flooding and fallen tree branches in New York City on Saturday night temporarily caused service changes on several lines.
