in the case of a heavy downpour there could be a flood. Bring a life preserver. Also earthquakes could be a problem..... but It is very safe in a tornado.

the subways are creepy at night.. probably why SEPTA closes them at 12. BTW PATCO runs 24/7 and is really safe.

The subway is only bad when school gets out and swarms of kids are using it.

The subway is perfectly fine after 9 PM unless you're easily spooked.
