HARRISON, N.Y. -  Commuters are bracing themselves for more delays during tomorrow's morning rush as the power problems continue on Metro-North's New Haven line.

Crews in New York say they made some progress this weekend restoring limited power to the line, but service still is nowhere near normal levels.

Gov. Dannel Malloy said today that more trains will run on the New Haven Line tomorrow, but it will still only be at 50 percent of its normal capacity during the morning hours.

Malloy says Metro-North and Con Edison are continuing to make repairs to fix the electrical outage that happened on Wednesday morning. He says passengers should plan on taking alternate methods of transportation.

Con Edison has said that it hopes to have power restored to normal levels by Oct. 7.
