Lightning lit up One World Trade Center during Henri

Breathtaking video clip taken all through Tropical Storm Henri captured the minute a bolt of lightning struck 1 World Trade Centre and turned the Manhattan skyline a vivid shade of purple. 

The clip, filmed Sunday by New York Town resident Ryan Nystrom, shows lightning hitting the spire atop the skyscraper in Reduce Manhattan as Henri’s outer bands whipped the five boroughs with vicious wind and rain. 

The onetime hurricane narrowly missed creating landfall on Lengthy Island and in its place hit Rhode Island’s japanese coastline all around 12:15 p.m. Sunday. 

The storm proceeded to weaken as it created its way northwest by Connecticut but continued to dump buckets of rain throughout the northeast, creating risky flooding conditions.
