NORWALK - Metro-North posted a statement to its website, offering some explanations about a string of recent incidents.

The statement expresses that Metro-North understands why commuters are upset about recent issues, which include derailments, power outages and service delays.

The railroad says it has reduced speed limits along curves and is working on improving communication between trains. However, Metro-North says delays will likely continue through the winter because snow and ice have damaged brakes and other parts.
