Green Line train derails, rain floods communities

BOSTON (AP) — A subway train in Massachusetts derailed briefly as heavy rain challenges drivers and commuters in Massachusetts.

Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority officials say a Green Line trolley derailed around 7 a.m. Sunday morning in Boston after it hit debris stuck on the track during a downpour. No passengers were on the train, and the conductor was not injured.

The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood warning for Lynn, Peabody and Salem after 4 inches of rain fell in a short period of time. Pockets of northern Massachusetts experienced street flooding overnight.
