Lightning Strikes One World Trade Center in Stunning Earth Day 2015 DisplayMother Nature’s magnificent power was on full display when lightning struck One World Trade Center in New York City during late afternoon storms Wednesday, on Earth Day. The New York City skyline provided the perfect backdrop as a cold front moved through the metro area, producing a few lightning strikes, said meteorologist Chris Dolce.
