WASHINGTON, D.C. — Amtrak trains traveling south from Washington D.C. were stopped due to severe weather conditions, according to a Tweet from Amtrak Northeast.

Amtrak stopped six trains around 10:20 a.m. Monday because of flooding and washout conditions on CSX tracks. There was also a hold on all tracks between New Carrollton and Washington due to flooding in the area.

All of the trains are back up and running again.

Amtrak officials say they allowed the trains to start running once two tracks were cleared out for travel. There were no reported injuries and officials will continue to monitor weather conditions so that it is safe for trains to travel along the routes.

If you have any questions on train delays and ticket information Amtrak asks commuters to contact them at 1-800-USA-RAIL for additional assistance.
