WASHINGTON (AP) An Amtrak spokeswoman says power to trains at Washington's Union Station was lost for less than 10 minutes, causing minor delays.

Amtrak spokeswoman Karina Romero says the power went out shortly before 5 p.m. Tuesday and was back on about eight minutes later. Romero says the outage only affected trains, and not the station.

The Amtrak spokeswoman say the cause of the outage has not been determined.
