NEW YORK (AP) – The National Park Service says the Statue of Liberty will be relit tonight for the first time since it was damaged by Superstorm Sandy.

National Park Foundation spokeswoman Marjorie Hall says the light should be visible again by dusk, around 6:30 p.m.

The statue’s famous beacon can be seen from many vantage points around New York City.

The statue has been closed to visitors because of damage resulting from the storm that hit the area Oct. 29, with no estimate on when it will reopen.
