UPDATE: 7:48 p.m. Normal service has been restored.
The MBTA has halted Riverside service between Reservoir and Newton Highlands. Spokesman Joe Pesaturo reports:
This afternoon, a large tree fell from a Newton resident's backyard. It is leaning on the Green Line's overhead wire, just east of Newton Centre Station. As a result, the T has temporarily suspended Green Line service between Reservoir and Newton Highlands. Buses are replacing train service between the two stations and stops in between.
