Amtrak cancels Tuesday service in Northeast

Associated Press
 

WASHINGTON (AP) — Amtrak says it has canceled all Tuesday service in the Northeast due to high winds and heavy rain from Hurricane Sandy.

The railroad said passenger service between Boston and Raleigh, N.C., and between the East Coast and Chicago, New Orleans and Florida will be suspended for the second day in a row.

Cancellations include Acela Express, Northeast Regional, Keystone and Shuttle service, among other trains. Passengers were urged to follow developments on Amtrak.com and Facebook and Twitter sites. No decision has yet been made on when service will be resumed.

Amtrak said passengers who have paid but who didn’t travel because of the service disruption can receive a refund or a voucher for future travel.
