Public and private schools in Philadelphia currently monitor the path of Hurricane Sandy but have yet to announce any closings. Meanwhile, SEPTA warns riders of potential disruptions.
The School District of Philadelphia said on its Twitter feed that no decision has been made for class on Monday, as Hurricane Sandy moves toward the city.
Additionally, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia has yet to announce intentions for Monday.
In addition to the schools, the public transit system monitors Sandy and has issued warnings and service advisories to commuters.
SEPTA Stops Service
SEPTA already plans for disruptions to several lines, including the Manayunk/Norristown and Chestnut Hill West Lines.
"More details will be made available as we see the exact path and severity of this storm, but we know from past weather events, certain parts of our system are more likely to be affected due to the proximity to rivers and other flood-prone areas," according to a weather advisory.
"We are prepared for the possibility of system-wide disruptions and slow service conditions due to heavy rain, high winds, and flooding..."
Additionally, SEPTA plans for the following bus routes to experience delays or interrupted service: 1, 9, 27, 35, 38, 61, 62, 65, 124, 125, R, and K.
According to Philadelphia's 311 call service, no changes have been made to trash pickup as of 3:15 p.m. Sunday.
