WASHINGTON (AP) — Amtrak has suspended some train service due to the winter weather moving through the mid-Atlantic region.

Northeast Regional trains between Norfolk, Virginia and Richmond, Virginia were cancelled Thursday, along with the Northeast Regional between Newport News, Virginia and Washington.

Amtrak says the Palmetto train that operates between New York City and Savannah, Georgia is also cancelled for Thursday.
