MINEOLA - The Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) says it is running at full service this evening following a lightning strike that disrupted the commute of thousands of riders yesterday. The LIRR says service was back to "near normal levels this morning," with about five out of 140 morning trains being canceled. Yesterday's lightning strike suspended service just in time for the evening rush hour. Commuters complained they were stranded for hours on trains or left at stations with no way to get home.
