Security increases on Metro-North trains in wake of London terror attacks
In the wake of the terror attacks in London Thursday, security has been increased on Metro-North trains and train stations throughout the county.
Four blasts rocked the London subway system and ripped apart a double-decker bus, killing at least 37 people. The nationwide terror alert level was raised from yellow to orange for all mass transit systems. Governor Pataki (R-NY) has ordered state troopers to patrol all commuter trains in and out of New York City.
Some commuters at the White Plains train station say they feel safe with the extra security. White Plains police officials say since the 9/11 attacks, everyone has been on high alert and will continue to be. They add the extra patrols are to ease any fears commuters may have.
Governor Pataki is urging anyone who sees anything suspicious to call the Counter-Terrorism Tip Hotline at (1-866) SAFE-NYS (7233-697).
