WASHINGTON — Service on and south of Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor is being disrupted by flooding near Washington, D.C.

About 10 a.m. EDT, Amtrak said on its Northeast Corridor alerts Twitter feed that all trains travelling south of Washington were stopped because of severe weather conditions. Tracks began to be cleared for traffic about two hours later, allowing traffic to move with delays. But shortly thereafter, traffic on all tracks between Washington and New Carrollton, Md., was being held because of weather.

Commuter services are also being affected. Virginia Railway express reports on its website that passengers can expect delays for afternoon and evening service. MARC trains are experiencing 25-30-minute delays.

Watch Amtrak's Northeast Corridor Twitter feed or website for updated information.
