Tuesday morning’s heavy rain caused service interruptions during the morning commute. Washed out sections of  the track bed caused the Manayunk/Norristown regional rail line to be down much of the day. 

SEPTA was able to restore service around 3 p.m. on the Manayunk/Norristown line.

Service on the Chestnut Hill West regional rail line halted in the morning due to high water levels and resumed around 10 a.m. with significant delays. 

SEPTA noted that commuters are able to keep up with service delays and annoucements by following @SEPTA_Social on Twitter, or checking SEPTA’s Facebook page
