Picture showing a storm hovering over Statue of Liberty is FAKE


NEW YORK — It’s a picture that’s spreading like a wildfire in the social media as Hurricane Sandy approaches the northeast. But it’s all FAKE! Nothing about the picture is real.

The picture shows a massive swirl of a storm over New York City with the Statue of Liberty in the foreground. Myth-busting website Snopes.com actually busted the myth two years ago — when the photo emerged in the aftermath of a Brooklyn tornado.

It turns out the picture is a photoshopped blending of a photo of a statue and the storm-darkened skies over Nebraska.
