Railroads Alter Florida Service Because of Storms

As Tropical Storm Bonnie and Hurricane Charley moved towards Florida, railroads began altering their services to avoid the storm.

CSX said it had no plans to alter service “at any location other than the area directly affected by the storm,” the statement continued. “Once the storm passes, tracks will be inspected and necessary repairs made before restarting rail traffic.”

Tropical Storm Bonnie and Hurricane Charley pummeled Florida between Panama City, Fla., and Tallahassee, Fla., on Aug. 12 and Aug. 13.

“All precautions will be taken to ensure the safety of our employees, our customers and the public with minimum delay to shipments as we continue to monitor the progress of this storm,” CSX said.

Amtrak also cancelled some of its passenger trains into Florida.
