Plumbing issue at Penn Station under control after causing flooding; LIRR not impacted

MIDTOWN, Manhattan (WABC) -- A plumbing issue, and not a water main break, caused flooding at Penn Station late Saturday, the New York City Department of Environmental Protection said.

It was initially suspected that a water main break caused the flow of water that pooled in part of the station.

The FDNY said the water was brought under control just before 11:30 p.m.


The flooding did not impact LIRR trains.



No injuries were reported.
