Baltimore: Metro

Section flooded when pumps fail

Flooding has disrupted a section of Metro subway service through at least today, state transit authorities said. A shuttle bus service was being provided for riders between the Lexington Market and Johns Hopkins Hospital stations, officials said. A transformer blew out while it was raining Friday afternoon, which sparked a power outage and caused flooding as the station's pumps stopped working, officials said. Workers hope to complete repairs by this evening, officials said. Anyone seeking more information on MTA services should call 410-539-5000.
