Miley Cyrus shares footage of her plane being struck by lightning

Miley Cyrus confirmed her family and friends are safe after her plane was forced into an emergency landing.

The Wrecking Ball hitmaker shocked fans when she shared a short clip on Twitter of her plane being struck by a giant bolt of lightning mid-air.

Miley had flown to Paraguay to perform at the capital’s Asunciónico festival but has withdrawn from attending the event following the horrific incident.

Taking to social media to reassure her fans, Miley said she and her fellow travelers have been caught up in the extreme weather conditions that have hit Paraguay in recent days.

“To my fans and anyone who is concerned after hearing about my flight to Asuncion. Our plane got caught in a big unexpected storm and was struck by lightning (sic),” she began.

“My crew, band, friends and family, who all traveled with me, are safe after an emergency landing,” she wrote alongside the two-second clip of the thunderstorm.

Miley then shared a picture of the damage the bolt caused to the plane and apologized to her fans who would miss seeing her at the festival.

“Unfortunately we couldn’t fly to Paraguay. I LOVE YOU,” she wrote alongside a picture of the damage caused by the lightning.

It appears that lightning struck the plane’s wing and worried fans flocked to send their well wishes to the singer.

“We’re glad you’re safe, Miley. I hope Paraguayan fans can understand and hope to see you another time,” wrote one.

“We are so happy that you, your family and your team are doing well. I can’t imagine how scary it was to survive a flight like this,” added another.

“We love you, your safety is more important,” one replied.

The capital of Paraguay has been hit by extreme weather conditions in recent days, with heavy rain and massive flooding reported on Tuesday.

The Asunciónico festival announced it had canceled the first day of the event – which was scheduled to feature Foo Fighters, Machine Gun Kelly and Doja Cat – but it’s unknown if the inclement weather will affect additional days.
