NEW YORK (AP) — The Latest on the suspension of seven New York City subway lines (all times local):
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority says a failure in the computer system that powers the signals on seven New York City subway lines caused a suspension of more than an hour on those lines.
Communications Director Tim Minton says in an emailed statement that there is no indication the stoppage was related to a loss of power or heat. The temperature was above 90 degrees Fahrenheit (32 degrees Celsius) when the stoppage happened during the Friday evening commute.
Minton said that all trains stopped in place for safety reasons. Some trains were between stations, and they were slowly moved to platforms where passengers could exit.
