NEW YORK (AP) _ The record-setting temperatures have caused power lines on the Metro-North Railroad to sag and disrupt service in a section of Connecticut.

Metro-North spokesman Aaron Donovan says there are 30 to 40 minutes delays between Stamford and New Haven.

Non-peak service is suspended in the opposite direction.

Donovan says three trains became disabled earlier Friday after they became entangled with the overheated power lines.

He says passengers on the disabled trains were transferred. Workers are still trying remove the cars from the tracks.
No other lines are affected.
