WILMINGTON, Del. -- Amtrak says it is canceling service across the northeastern U.S. on Monday as Hurricane Sandy threatens to create a wet, windy mess in the region.

Amtrak said in a news release Sunday that it was canceling all service north of New York at 7 p.m. Nearly all service across the Eastern Seaboard will be canceled starting Monday.

Amtrak says it has not yet determined when train services will resume. Alternate transportation is not available.

Some trains will continue to run in Florida and the Carolinas.

The news release says customers can receive a refund or voucher for future travel.
