5:16 am
damaged, to impact the blue, silver and orange lines platforms. that forced a shut down during the night to be able to repair and get the system going again. but this trouble goes back a year ago to a deadly smoke incident near l'enfant station, involving the same kind of power cables. now, if inspectors find problems, parts of the system could be shut down for longer. the goal, though, for now is to return the system to normal service tomorrow morning at 5:00 a.m. again, the only folks that we have seen going in and out of mcpherson square are the metro workers on scene for this one precedented shutdown. that is the latest live from northwest. back to you. >> mollett, thank you. some folks are trying to take a look at some of the lighter sides of this issue with metro. street cars in d.c. running. d.c. street cars center out a tweet

5:33 am
situation. we checked in virginia, i-95 and 395, express lanes, those are going to run normally. what does that mean for drivers taking them? that means there's a huge possibility for more traffic and crowded lanes. the tolls can be extremely high but transirvin tweeting out they plan to donate the extra from tolls. >> angie goff, thank you. with metro completely shut down, many of you are wondering why and why not wait until the weekend to fix the issue. metro manager paul wiedefeld said this is a matter of public safety. >> if it happened once, it's what happened, right. but it's happened twice in a year, so i can't worry about that. >> 60-year-old
