Travelers waiting at an Amtrak platform in Rhinecliff, New York got blasted with snow Wednesday as a train rolled in on tracks that hadn't been cleared from Winter Storm Stella.

The whole thing was caught on video, and uploaded in "snow-mo" to YouTube. It since has gone viral, climbing YouTube's trending chart and making the rounds on Twitter and other social platforms. Watch below:

A witness told NBC New York that some travelers were thrown to the ground. One woman had a minor head injury.

Railroad expert Gus Ubaldi believes there should have been at least "some sort of announcement," the station reported.
