Amtrak suspended its service between New York and Boston this morning after a tree fell onto the overhead wire system in Connecticut, the train service said.
Passengers who have already paid to travel on this route can get a refund or rebook for the future without any fees, according to an Amtrak advisory.
The tree fell at about 8 a.m. today in Guilford, Conn., not far from the tracks, the advisory said. This resulted in a loss of power to trains.
Though Amtrak is performing repairs, it is uncertain how long the service suspension will last, the advisory said.
Service between New York and Washington, D.C., was not affected.
