Tropical Storms Prompt No Service to New Orleans

Amtrak has canceled service to New Orleans ahead of two approaching tropical storms.

Affected are the Sunset Limited, Crescent and City of New Orleans.

In a service advisory, Amtrak said Nos. 1 and 2 will operate between Los Angeles and San Antonio with no alternative transportation provided between San Antonio and New Orleans.

Nos. 19 and 20 will operate between New York and Atlanta with no alternative transportation being provided between Atlanta and New Orleans. The cancellations will last through Aug. 26.

Nos. 59 will not operate on Aug. 24 and 25 while No. 59 will not operate on Aug. 25 and 26.

Amtrak said no alternative service is being provided between New Orleans and Carbondale, Illinois, but passengers booked on Nos. 58 or 59 are being referred to the northbound Saluki and southbound Illini as alternative transportation.

The service advisory said passengers whose travel plans are disrupted will be rebooked on other trains on the affected routes on other dates. Reservation change charges will be waived.
