AMTRAK NORTHEAST CORRIDOR SERVICE TO OPERATE ON A MODIFIED SCHEDULE MONDAY | CHECK HERE FOR DELAYS

On Saturday morning, a pipe bomb exploded in Seaside Park, New Jersey before a charity 5K race to benefit Marines and sailors. The race was canceled and no one was injured.

29 people were injured in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood after a bomb blast. Investigators also say an unexploded pressure-cooker device was found blocks away.

Later on Sunday, five explosive devices were found near a New Jersey train station and one of the devices exploded as a bomb squad was trying to disarm it with a robot.

As a result, Amtrak service was suspended for a period of time on Sunday.

On its website Monday morning, Amtrak says "passengers should be prepared for the possibility of additional cancellations and delays throughout the day Monday."

Authorities are working to determine if these incidents are connected.
