DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) - Canadian Pacific Railway says its rail line south of Dubuque is back in operation after a derailment.

The railroad says 26 cars from a 99-car train derailed around 6 a.m. Sunday about 10 miles from Dubuque. The derailment shook several nearby homes, but none was hit and no injuries were reported. At least eight of the cars already have been put back on the tracks.

The Dubuque County Sheriff’s office says the train of empty sand cars was headed north when the derailment occurred. The cause of the accident is being investigated.
