We certainly have had some wild weather this year, and last night was no different with severe thunderstorms moving through the New York/New Jersey area.

Last night multiple bolts of lightning struck somewhere behind the Statue of Liberty. The lightning bolt might have landed on the other side of the river.

You can't tell exactly where it landed, but this video is definitely pretty ominous.

I just think that this video is kind of ironic, and symbolizes what this country is going through right now.

Staten Island resident Mike Calabrese captured the video and posted it to Twitter.
