Hurricane Ian landed in Florida as a dangerous Category 4 hurricane on Thursday. Governor Ron DeSantis and federal authorities have urged residents in the storm’s paths to seek safety by evacuating the area. Some brave souls, however, have decided to weather the storm. Some of them are even getting paid to stand outside and cover the storm’s chaos for the rest of us sitting in our living rooms.
That includes Jim Cantore, a legendary reporter for the Weather Channel who has made a career out of reporting from the middle of dangerous storms such as Hurricane Ian. However, the latest hurricane to strike Florida’s coast was almost Cantore’s last.
Attempting to throw the broadcast to coverage of the Hurricane’s storm wall in Punta Gana, Florida, Cantor visibly reacted when a thunderous lightning strike hit the immediate area where he was standing.
