Jan 5 2019, 8:11 am

After heavy rains pelted the region yesterday, a popular passenger train service between Vancouver and Belllingham WA. has been halted over a mudslide on the tracks.

In a tweet, train operator Amtrak said that one of its trains from Bellingham to Vancouver was forced to return to Washington State because of the incident.

For those on the train, the company said alternate transportation in the form of bus service would be provided.

Some reports have indicated that due to the slide, the passenger train service will be out of commission until Sunday, and Daily Hive has reached out to Amtrak for further information.
