Amtrak train in Rhinecliff blasts people on platform with snow

Winter Storm Stella brought more than 20-inches of snow to different parts of MA and while NY didn't get hit as bad - some passengers waiting for a train in the state sure did.

Commuters had little time to react and the force of the snow blast knocked some of them to the ground. The rail service says the Manhattan-bound train was traveling at the authorized speed as it entered the station.

RHINECLIFF, N.Y. Amtrak customers in this Northern Dutchess village now know what to do when a train is approaching on snow-covered tracks: Stand way back on the platform.

One woman looked as it she was absolutely wiped out by the wall of snow and according to reports some passengers were swept off their feet. If you see snow piled so high on a track that it is above the elevated platform, you may want to seek shelter during a train's arrival.

Rhinecliff likely picked up almost 2 feet of snow from this week's blizzard, the Washington Post's Capital Weather Gang reported.

YouTuber Nick Colvin was standing on the platform when the train arrived into Rhinecliff Station on Wednesday.
