The Sounder evening train from Seattle to Everett was delayed just south of Everett, waiting for workers with chain saws to come clear the trees and debris from the track.

Then the train was delayed for an unspecified time due to water over the tracks just north of the Edmonds station. Buses picked up passengers to take them to Mukilteo and Everett.

Water subsided and debris was cleared by 8:30pm. Normal runs are expected Wednesday morning.

Local passengers lucked out, as the train made it to the Edmonds station without incident.
