Merrick, New York, U.S. January 21, 2014. Pausing briefly for safety's sake as a train rushes into the LIRR Merrick Train Station, Maintenance of Way (MOW) staff members of the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) shovel snow as it falls heavily on the windy elevated platform. The Metropolitan Transit Authority added extra afternoon trains to Long Island Rail Road. Long Island towns declared a snow emergency, with up to 10 inches of snow expected.
