Direct hit: Empire State Building Zapped by Lightning, Lit Blue White for Argentina #London2012 #TeamUSA
Video: A Violent Late Afternoon Lightning Storm & Tornado Hits NYC; A view of the Empire State Building and the NYC skyline #ESB
A violent lightning and thunder storm, dumping a torrential downpour, ripped through NYC in the late afternoon of 9/16/10. The whole thing was over in a matter of minutes, and then calm resumed.
The Empire State Building’s lightning rod got put to good use during this lightning / thunder storm — it got zapped by a direct hit! How neat is that?
And no, the ESB isn’t leaning. That was a tripod malfunction that couldn’t be adjusted. Oops!
