WASHINGTON
The Washington area’s Metro system remains closed, but officials say they’re not seeing major damage because of superstorm Sandy.

Spokesman Dan Stessel says it appears the transit system weathered the storm well. He says they were most worried about flooding, downed trees and power problems. But Metro crews weren’t finding major damage.

Stessel says there was some water infiltration but no significant flooding and few downed trees that will affect the transit system. Still, they want to inspect further once the sun rises Tuesday.

Metro plans to determine its reopening plans by noon Tuesday. Stessel says he expects the transit system will be operating Wednesday.

Metro is the nation’s second-busiest transit system after New York City based on weekly ridership.
