2012-10-30 11:59:271 Oct 2018 01:53 AM EST

- by Sarah Jordan, Contributing Writer; Image: Strong flooding in the Lower East Side led to power outtages for Manhattan south of 39th St.

The following updates have come out of a joint press conference given by Mayor Bloomberg and Governor Cuomo:

- 7 East River subway lines are still flooded. These lines connect Brooklyn and Queens to Manhattan.

- Limited bus service to be restored by 5 PM today.

- There's a boat on a Metro North track that is hampering service there.

- Taxi drivers will be able to pick up multiple fares at once.

- Roads should be cleared by tomorrow.

- NYC public schools are closed Wednesday, October 31.

- ConEd should begin restoring power within days, with Governor Cuomo classifying previous estimates of a 2-week restoration time as "unacceptable."

- The Brooklyn Battery and Holland tunnels are still closed and flooded. The same is true with the Queens Midtown Tunnel.

- Area bridges are re-opening, but all bridges in the Rockaways are closed.

- Drinking water in New York is clean and may have a different taste due to extra chlorine that State officials added in as a precaution.

More updates within the hour.
