1,000 People on two trains had to be rescued this morning after the trains became disabled in Tunnels crossing the Hudson River between New Jersey and New York City.

NJ Transit and Amtrak services are currently running with delays in and out of Penn Station New York due to wire problems.

Service was suspended for hours early Saturday morning after a Northeast Corridor train became disabled around 11:45 p.m. Friday. Overhead Amtrak wires in the Hudson River Tunnel dislodged, striking the train.

Another train traveling into New Jersey also became disabled when it struck debris west of the tunnel's North Tube.

Amtrak tweeted that crews were able to restore power on one track, and trains will begin moving shortly. Crews are continuing to get power restored on the other track.

AMTRAK's Northeast Corridor service runs from Washington, DC to Boston and carries massive numbers of people on weekdays.  Today's outage is less impactful because it's a weekend, but thousands in the Northeastern U.S. will still be delayed because of these troubles.
