LIRR answering for snowstorm mishaps
From the snow-covered roads and parking lots to one train that got stuck for hours, the LIRR continues to field questions about the way it handled this weekend?s storm.
About 150 passengers on a Ronkonkoma train that left New York City early Sunday became stranded when the train hit a snow drift. Passengers on the train told News 12 conductors made no overhead announcements to let riders know what was going on. They also say MTA police were aboard and did not answer questions.
The LIRR is conducting a full review of the incident.
Long Islanders continued to deal with the aftermath of this weekend's blizzard on their morning and evening commutes Monday. Delays plagued the Montauk and Ronkonkoma branches in the morning. Bus service also replaced train service between Ronkonkoma and Greenport.
Snowy train station parking lots also posed a problem for commuters.
