In the caption of the post, the 29-year-old singer wrote, "To my fans and everyone worried after hearing about my flight to Asunción. Our plane was caught in a major unexpected storm and struck by lighting. My crew, band, friends, and family who were all traveling with me are safe after an emergency landing. We were, unfortunately, unable to fly into Paraguay." The singer included a broken-heart emoji in the caption before adding, "I LOVE YOU." Although the incident changed the plans of thousands of fans in Paraguay coming out to see the singer, they were probably glad to know she was safe.

Cyrus' post was overwhelmed with prayers and well wishes from her fans and those close to her. One fan commented, "I'm so sorry about it… I'm in Paraguay rn, but I truly understand." Designer Jeremy Scott commented, "THANK GOD YOU ALL ARE SAFE," in addition to singer-songwriter Ilsey Juber, who wrote, "Omg so glad you guys are ok!" Due to the extreme weather conditions and a massive flood that hit Asunción, the first day of the music festival was canceled. However, multiple reports claim that the former Disney star "will perform [at Asuncionico], pending that the festival doesn't get canceled/postponed due to the flooding and inclement weather." Meanwhile, Cyrus' upcoming shows are set to continue as planned, with fans eagerly waiting for her to take the stage in Brazil on March 26. Stay tuned.
