Power outage delays NJ Transit trains

    A power interruption has delayed four trains bound for new York City, stranding hundreds of rail passengers, according to a report from The Star-Ledger.

    The Star-Ledger reports the power interruption happened in the south tube of the train tunnel, which travels under the Hudson River.

    Passengers were delayed up to 80 minutes on both out and inbound NJ Transit train lines.

    It’s unclear what caused the power outage.
