NEW YORK (AP) -- New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg says he expects the NYC Marathon to go on as scheduled Sunday.

Bloomberg spoke at a news conference Tuesday after superstorm Sandy pounded the city. Five days before the marathon, public transportation was shut, airports closed and streets flooded, with power out in many neighborhoods.

Marathon organizers say they are moving ahead with plans for the race, leaving open the possibility of changes from past years because of the storm.

New York Road Runners says in a statement that "the marathon has always been a special day for New Yorkers as a symbol of the vitality and resiliency of this city."
