(CHICAGO) According to Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District Website, all train service to and from Chicago is suspended Thursday morning due to blizzard related damage.

A blown conductor paired with a grade crossing malfunction is the cause of this suspension, therefore no trains will be in service until the proper repairs are completed by NIPSCO of Northwest Indiana.

NIPSCO has also announced that they “continue to experience significant outages due to heavy snow and high winds brought by Wednesday’s blizzard conditions.”

In a statement made by the power company, more than 250 NIPSCO employees are working to correct the damage. They have also initiated additional resources to staff the call center and emergency command center, focusing on power restoration efforts.

Metra has announced that the Electric District train line will honor all South Shore Commuter tickets until service is restored.

***As of 7:15 a.m. CST, power has been restored to the South Shore Line, though the suspension will remain through the morning commute.
