New York Subway Routes in Relation to Revised Hurricane Zones
The map above was produced using the old subway and subway stop shape files from several years back. Not to much changes from year to year in New York City regarding new routes. Currently, the Montague Street Tunnel through which the "R" train passes to Lower Manhattan is closed for 14 months due to flooding damage from Hurricane Sandy. Even though service was restored after the storm, many of the electronic components have corroded and it was decided to close the tubes for 14 months in order to repair the damage. At any rate, you an see that many of the subway routes passes through hurricane risk zones. The Coney Island shop and yard is always in danger of flooding and so are many other transit facilities throughout the city. The blue area is free from risk of hurricane damage.
