Breaking: Evacuation at Essex and Delancey Subway Station Due to Smoke Condition

Must Read

We are on the scene at the Essex and Delancey Subway Station (J,M,Z,F) where passengers are currently being evacuated due to an extreme smoke condition in one of  the tunnels. The entire station is being evacuated as well as the Delancey Street/Bowery Station. A lot of fire trucks are outside both stations.

NBC New York is reporting service suspension of the J,M,Z trains in both directions.

511 NYC is reporting suspension of the B and D trains, in both directions, as well.

NBC NY notes:

Fire Department officials described the smoke as “light” Friday afternoon at the Delancey Street – Essex Street station on the Lower East Side, but they did not know where the smoke originated from.

Metropolitan Transportation Authority spokesperson Charles Seaton said a J train became stuck inside a “no power area” at the Essex Street station at 2:50 p.m on Friday.
The train reversed back to the Essex St. Station and the passengers were discharged from the train. The MTA did not have an exact number of passengers on the train.
No injuries have been reported at this time.
