Amtrak to Decide on Resuming Limited Service During Storm
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Amtrak says most train service in the Northeast remains suspended and a decision will be made later in the day on restoring limited service north and south of New York on Wednesday.
The railroad said in a statement that Amtrak crews are currently inspecting tunnels, tracks, equipment and stations in the Northeast to assess damage from Hurricane Sandy and are beginning to make repairs to sections of Amtrak-owned track. Amtrak said it is also working closely with other railroads on whose tracks Amtrak trains operate to determine when passenger train service can resume.
Most Amtrak service on the East Coast as far north as Boston and as far south as Raleigh, N.C. remains suspended and stations along those routes are closed.

Oklahoma governor establishes disaster relief fund
May 21, 2013 20:57 GMT
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin has established a disaster relief fund to help with the long-term medical, emotional and educational needs of victims of tornados that have ravaged central Oklahoma in recent days.
Fallin said Tuesday she established the OK Disaster Relief Fund in conjunction with the United Way of Central Oklahoma. The fund is designed to help victims of a tornado that struck Moore on Monday, killing at least 24 people, and another that struck Shawnee on Sunday and left two people dead.
Fallin says Oklahomans are grateful for the global outpouring of support following the devastating tornadoes. She says the support will help meet many of the short-term needs of victims. But the governor says victims also face long-term challenges that the new disaster relief fund will help meet.
