Nutter: Quake won't stop tonight's Phillies' game

Mayor Nutter just told reporters that today's earthquake will not delay or cancel tonight's Phillies' game.

"We look forward as usual to kicking the Mets’ butt," Nutter said.

Deputy Mayor for Transportation and Utilities Rina Cutler said she hoped SEPTA's Broad Street line would be running in time for the game. Currently, the line is stopping at the Walnut/Locust station, with shuttle buses continuing south to Pattison Ave.

“It is our hope that [the trains] are running in time for the Phillies,” said Cutler, adding that engineers are currently in the tunnel inspecting the impact.

Update: As of 4:20 p.m. SEPTA spokesperson Jerri Williams said the Broad Street line is running to AT&T station. Services were suspended due to a crack in the tunnel but Williams said it was unrelated to the earthquake.
