Amtrak begins to resume service after Hurricane Florence


Amtrak today resumed its regular scheduled Northeast Regional service in Virginia and cities in the Northeast, following cancellations and other schedule changes prompted by the impact of Hurricane Florence.

Due to severe weather that continues to affect the Southeast, Amtrak will continue to modify service through Thursday, railroad officials said in a service update.

Trains cancelled through Thursday include the Auto Train, Nos. 52 and 53; and the Silver Meteor, Train Nos. 97 and 98.

Operating on a modified schedule will be the Silver Star between New York City and Miami and the Palmetto, which operates between New York City and Savannah, Georgia.
