The most recent heat wave is causing problems on the rails.

Amtrak trains traveling up and down the Northeast Corridor were delayed for nearly 20 minutes throughout the day.

With some parts of the track reaching temperatures as high as 120 degrees, trains were required to slow down for safety purposes.
