WASHINGTON - Amtrak has suspended services from DC to Boston amid a power windstorm ripping through the region on Friday.
Amtrak said its services along its NEC line were suspended until Saturday morning, noting multiple weather-related issues.
“We apologize for this inconvenience and will be providing updates as soon as possible,” Amtrak said in a part of a tweet.
Power wind gusts topped more than 60 mph as they toppled trees and power lines throughout the District, forcing schools to close and knocking out power to thousands.
The storm also caused disruptions at airports, with one pilot landing at Washington Dulles International Airport reporting, "pretty much everyone on the plane threw up."
