Watch out! Video shows Amtrak train's snow wave engulfing platform

Watch out! Video shows Amtrak train's snow wave engulfing platform”

Like, for instance, this group of people standing on a train platform in NY state that just got fucking demolished when an Amtrak plowed through the snow-covered tracks. Some people were knocked to the ground.

The commuters looked like they knew the wave of snow was coming, but certainly didn't expect it would be so big.

An Amtrak train entered the station, blasting snow from the tracks onto the elevated platform, into the path of waiting commuters.

Senate Committee Approves Statewide Ban on Texting While Driving
Numerous bill's critics testified Wednesday that they approved of Geren's changes but still opposed the overall measure. Individuals who violate the measure will not face any criminal charges for using an opposite-sex bathroom.

Not to mention, several people have since questioned the speed of the train as it approached the mound in front of the platform. Witnesses said at least one person suffered a head injury. Rhinecliff got about 2 feet of snow from this week's blizzard and I'm guessing there was quite a bit more on the tracks due to drifting.

Dramatic video shows snow flying everywhere and hitting those waiting for the train. Nearby Rhinebeck recorded 21.5 inches, according to the National Weather Service.
