Merrick, New York, U.S. January 21, 2014. Pausing briefly for safety's sake as a train enters the LIRR Merrick Train Station, Maintenance of Way (MOW) workers for 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. Governor Cuomo declared a state of emergency due to the snow storm, with up to 10 inches of snow expected.
