Ice Fall Thumb

PATH train service was suspended Tuesday afternoon at the WTC station due to ice falling around the World Trade Center station, according to officials.

The station was closed just before 6 p.m. as melting icicles fell from a tarp wrapped around the top of the tower and from neighboring buildings, according to reports.

New Jersey-bound riders were advised to enter at 33 St., 23 St., 14th St., 9th St. or Christopher St. stations.

At 7:12 p.m., the Port Authority announced that service between Hoboken and 33rd St. had returned to normal.

There were no reported injuries.
