The creaks and swings sound straight out of a Sci-Fi movie!

Earlier this week, a user by the name of NYCFireWire on Twitter posted a video of an eerie Verrazano-Narrows Bridge creaking and undulating during a heavy rainstorm. The video from Monday, November 30th, captured how the day’s heavy wind conditions had affected the bridge. 

The 36-second clip captures the bridge swinging up and down amidst a shroud of grey storm clouds. The clip feels straight out of a movie scene, especially with the bridge’s ominous groans. 

Immediately, the video clip became viral, with one user saying:

“Well, there’s a sound I’ll never forget. Wow.”

According to ABC’s Eyewitness News:

The Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge is among the busiest bridges in the country, logging more than 215,000 vehicular crossings on weekdays prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Because of Staten-Island’s heavy weather conditions, the bridge got closed to prevent accidents or any other fatalities. Monday’s closure began by 2:28 pm and reopened about two hours later. 

According to MTA spokesman Aaron Donovan, suspension bridges are “engineered to be flexible and any movements on the bridge were within its safety standards.” In other words, despite how alarming the bridge appeared, these kinds of circumstances are actually normal, unlike what happened in Winston-Salem

I don’t know about you, but I’d rather drive the other direction.
