Metro is adding additional patrols Tuesday morning after suicide bombers struck a subway station and airport in Brussels.

Metro Transit Police said in a tweet that there is no “known, specific or credible threat” to the Washington, D.C., subway system at this time.

Officials said they are closely monitoring events in Brussels, where at least 13 people were killed and more than 100 others injured, and urged riders to be vigilant.

Security is also being tightened at subway stations and airports in New York.
