SCHENECTADY, N.Y. -- The Amtrak station in Schenectady was evacuated for a short period of time. The fire department said around 5:15 p.m. on Friday, Amtrak reported a section of floor tiles was cracking and buckling.
Amtrak then evacuated the building as a precaution. The fire department said there was a ten-foot section near the ticket booth that had buckled. The city inspector was called to check the integrity of the building, but said the subfloor was in perfect condition, which indicates there's no structural damage.
People were let back inside of the building just a short time later. Amtrak said no trains were delayed as a result.
