FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Officials are waiting for all train tracks to be checked before freight trains can resume service from Georgia to North Carolina, following Hurricane Matthew.

CSX Transportation spokeswoman Kristin Seay told The Fayetteville Observer (https://bit.ly/2d9ce3Q ) on Monday that some railroad ties and rail lines were washed out from the hurricane’s torrential rains over the weekend.

A statement on the CSX website says the company is working to restore rail lines, but service remains suspended from Savannah, Georgia, to Pembroke, North Carolina.
