SEATTLE (AP) — Heavy rains and winds are affecting passenger train service between Seattle and Everett.

BNSF Railways spokesman Gus Melonas says the railroad placed a 48-hour moratorium on passenger and commuter trains travel between Everett and Seattle starting around noon Monday.

He says crews are working to clear trees, mud and debris that have covered parts of the mainline track. He says there have been at least 10 slides affecting tracks since Monday morning.

Most routes in Washington are open to freight travel.
