All Amtrak train services between New York City and Boston have been suspended for the remainder of the day, the company announced.

Amtrak said Saturday afternoon that all service between New York City and Boston’s South Station would be suspended for the remainder of the day due to power outages north of New York City.

The rail company said on their website around 3:30 p.m. that all trains would be canceled due to a malfunctioning circuit breaker, which they say lead to a power outage on all of its tracks between New York City and New Haven, CT.

Amtrak advises all customers to check their train’s status before traveling, and says they’ll provide updates as they’re available.
