As expected after very heavy rainfall, the first mudslide of the rainy season occurred this morning at 7am near Edmonds. Sounder North service for Wednesday is cancelled. Per BNSF’s 48-hour rule, Amtrak Cascades trains 510 and 517 will be cancelled through Friday morning at least, trains 513 and 516 will be truncated to Seattle, and the Empire Builder (trains 7, 8) will turn at Everett. In all cases there will be bus replacement service offered.
With the rain yet to abate, expect more mudslides in the coming days. Sounder North is still scheduled to run on Saturday for the Apple Cup, but there’s a good chance of additional mudslides canceling that as well.
