Flooding may cause Amtrak delays

Amtrak service between New York and Washington is operating normally Thursday, but passengers may encounter delays because of disruptions in New England caused by flooding.

Flooded tracks in Rhode Island have prompted Amtrak to suspend some services in the Northeast for the second consecutive day.

A spokesman says Acela Express service between New Haven, Conn., and Boston as well as Northeast Regional service between New York and Boston were halted again on Thursday because of water on the tracks in South Kingstown, R.I., that rose overnight. Service was originally suspended Wednesday when floods from the rain storms that struck the region earlier in the week made the tracks impassable.

Amtrak workers will continue to monitor the conditions and re-evaluate the situation later Thursday.
