The cause is yet unknown, but thousands of commuters are affected. This at the start of Memorial Day long weekend. Trains are stopped in tunnels and along the tracks. Seen on CNN they are starting to move diesel trains in the finish transporting some trains.

Going to be lots of people late for work today. Hopefully they will find the cause and fix this as many people use this form of transportation.

NEWARK, New Jersey (AP) -- A major power outage stranded thousands of rush-hour commuters Thursday between New York and Washington, stopping five trains inside tunnels and forcing many passengers to get out and walk to the nearest station.

Three NJ Transit trains and one Amtrak train were stuck in a tunnel under the Hudson River heading into New York. A fifth train was stuck in a rail tunnel in Baltimore, Maryland. Amtrak said it planned to use diesel locomotives to remove them.
