    A mudslide near Vancouver, Wash., has prompted the suspension of rail travel between Seattle and Portland, Ore., at least until Monday.

    The mudslide happened six miles north of Vancouver, according to the Seattle Times. Routes between Los Angeles and Seattle, and between Eugene and Vancouver have been suspended. The affected routes have a total of five round-trip runs on Sunday.

    "There was 1.27 inches of rain at Lakeland, Washington," said AccuWeather.com Senior Meteorologist Tom Kines.

    Amtrak has arranged for a bus to carry the passengers between Seattle and Portland. After other means of transportation between the two cities, the passengers will be able to complete their trip by train, according to Amtrak.
