Forest Glen power restored
Update 4:47p.m.: The station has re-opened, according to Metro.
Update 4:40p.m.: The storm sweeping through the region has knocked out power at Forest Glen, and the station--which has six elevators and no stairs or escalators--has been closed since 3:15. Trains are passing through the station without stopping, so those headed to other stations should not be affected.
The station can be accessed via shuttle buses from Wheaton and Silver Spring, but considering that a shuttle bus can only accommodate a fraction of the riders on a packed train, the frequently-running Y8 and Q2 buses along Georgia Avenue are also good alternatives, and will be free to Metrorail passengers.
Original post: Power has been knocked out at Forest Glen station on the Red Line, shuttering the station to passengers attempting to board or unboard there until elevator service can be restored. Metro says it has requested shuttle bus service.
