EVERETT, Wash. - The snow and wet weather have caused yet another mudslide on train tracks between Seattle and Everett.

 

The new slide hit Thursday morning, halting passenger train service by Sound Transit and Amtrak for at least 48 hours.

 

The 48-hour moratorium on passenger traffic is standard while crews ensure the hillside is stable.

 

Video from Chopper 7 showed mud pouring down the hillside onto the tracks.

 

The same stretch of track has had more than 30 slides since Thanksgiving.

 

Riders can find the latest alerts on the Sound Transit website.
