A friend who was travelling from Philadelphia to Washington just after Noon on May 2, 2022 reports arriving at 30th St. station to find that every train due to leave after 8:30 a.m. was show as Delayed, except for Acela 2155 due to leave On Time at 12:11 p.m. An announcement was made that anyone with Wilmington, Baltimore, or Washington tickets could ride that Acela at no extra charge. Apparently a Northbound train had been reversed in the station.
I think this was the morning that electric company wires were caused to fall on the catenary in North Jersey.

Yes it was - an automobile had struck a utility pole that resulted in commercial wires falling onto the NEC catenary
