NORWALK - Some commuters in southwestern Connecticut say they can't help but feel a little uneasy about the latest terror threat on the eve of the Sept. 11 anniversary.

Many say if they had a choice, they'd be avoiding riding trains all together, but realistically, that's not an option.

While Metro-North authorities weren't willing to speak on camera today, they did say there was an especially large security presence this afternoon at Grand Central Terminal, Times Square, and Penn Station.

There was a also Metropolitan Transportation Authority K-9 unit patrolling some of local platforms today.

Officials say the increased security will continue into next week.
