Midwest Flooding Suspends Amtrak Service

Amtrak is suspending service between Chicago and destinations to the north and west because of flooding across the Midwest.

Service between St. Paul and Chicago and between Chicago and Denver is temporarily suspended due to the flooding.

Amtrak says it will be providing rides by chartered bus for some destinations but isn't offering any travel alternatives to or from cities in hard-hit Iowa.

Passengers are urged to call Amtrak at 1-800-USA-RAIL for more information.
