Service on Metrolink rail lines across SoCal will have interruptions and delays today while all tracks undergo mandatory post-earthquake inspection. Trains on the Inland Empire, Ventura County, Orange County, and 91 lines will not run until the inspections are completed. According to a live report on KTLA, Metrolink service in general has not been canceled, but is "running significantly slower." All other lines within a 50 mile-radius of the Chino Hills epicenter will run "at restricted speeds." Metrolink users are probably going to need a lot of patience today, especially if they are going online right now to try to access more information via the Metrolink site, which appears to be overburdened and, at this time, inaccessible.
