MBTA to Add Staff and Equipment During Hurricane Sandy

Gov. Deval Patrick said the MBTA would put additional personnel on duty and extra equipment to keep the system running during a possible visit from Hurricane Sandy.

The T is bracing for whatever Hurricane Sandy might bring, Gov. Deval Patrick said on Friday.

The transit agency will have additional personnel and equipment ready so that the system keeps working, Patrick said at a Friday press conference, according to Patch news partners 7News. Transit officials confirm that the MBTA has a plan in place.

"We are monitoring forecasts closely," T spokesperson Joshua Robin wrote in an email to Patch. "As conditions require, the MBTA will deploy extra personnel and equipment throughout the system, to limit any disruptions in service. Work crews are ready to respond to any storm-related issues that may emerge."

It still isn't clear if Hurricane Sandy will make a direct hit on Massachusetts. But even if it misses us, officials expect some type of effect from the conjunction of high tides and a clash of weather systems some have dubbed the "Frankenstorm."

Robin encourages riders to check MBTA.com and local news broadcasts for updates throughout the weekend and early next week. We'll be keeping close tabs here at Patch as well, and passing along what we know as soon as we know it.
