Looks like the flag on the base of the tower developed a tear from the recent bad weather

I don't understand why the flag is even still there. I thought it was just for 9/11, but they never took it away.

OMG I just looked at the PA cam and it is in shreds. Thats terrible, and I heard it was like the largest free-flying American flag in the world? They should have gotten it in sooner.
