Signals problems on MARC’s Penn Line have been reported between Baltimore and West Baltimore, which should cause delays of 10 to 12 minutes for southbound trains.

Additionally, Brusnwick Line train 876 will run two cars short this morning. That could lead to heavy crowding. Train 878 will make additional stops, according to the Maryland Transit Administration.

MARC’s Brunswick and Camden lines both have flash flood warnings in effect this morning, according to the Maryland Transit Administration. Trains will be running at a reduced speed, so expect to stop. There will be delays of 15 to 30 minutes.

Additionally, the Laurel Station overflow parking lot at the American Legion is closed due to flooding. The recommended alternative for parking is the Muirkirk Station.
