Lightning lit up One World Trade Center during Henri

Stunning video taken during Tropical Storm Henri captured the moment a bolt of lightning struck One World Trade Center and turned the Manhattan skyline a vivid shade of purple. 

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

The onetime hurricane narrowly missed making landfall on Long Island and instead hit Rhode Island’s eastern coast around 12:15 p.m. Sunday. 

The storm proceeded to weaken as it made its way northwest through Connecticut but continued to dump buckets of rain across the northeast, creating dangerous flooding conditions
