Metro is reporting significant delays and issues on the Silver, Blue and Orange lines.

As of 8:30 a.m., Silver Line trains were operating between Wiehle-Reston East and Ballston only, Metro reports. Riders are asked to transfer to Orange Line trains at Ballston.

But then there is more trouble. Once on the Blue and Orange lines, Westbound trains will skip McPherson Sq & Farragut West to reduce delays. Meanwhile, trains are trains are single tracking between Foggy Bottom and Smithsonian due to earlier fire department activity at McPherson Square.

Metro officials said earlier that delays of 30 to 60 minutes should be expected.

One rider tweeted it took him three hours to get from Reston to downtown DC this morning.
