Pride Island evacuated again amid after strong storm

NEW YORK — Pride Island was evacuated for the second time this weekend on Sunday because of a strong storm.

It was evacuated around 3:30 p.m. Officials said it was opened again around 4:20 p.m.

There was also a mandatory evacuation at Pride Island on Saturday evening. The sun was shinning when gates opened at 2 p.m., but just before 5 p.m., threatening weather and nearby lightning strikes shut down the festivities. After about an hour and a half, the skies cleared and the gates reopened.
