Lady Liberty stands tall – amid lightning strike in NY Harbor
Just two days earlier, Liberty Island was partially reopened to visitors after being closed since March By Dom Calicchio | Fox News
How strong is Lady Liberty? Strong enough to withstand a lightning strike.
A video posted on social media Wednesday evening showed storm clouds gathered above America’s most famous symbol of freedom.
Suddenly, a bolt of lightning descends from the heavens and strikes near the pedestal of the famous statue – which has served as a beacon of hope for both native-born Americans and immigrants since arriving as a gift from France in the 1880s.

Just as suddenly the flash is gone – with no sign of damage to the statue or to Liberty Island -- between New York and New Jersey in New York Harbor -- which serves as the statue’s home.
Just two days earlier, the island was partially reopened to visitors after being closed since March because of the coronavirus pandemic.
