Hurricane Florence: Ginger Zee and Gadi Schwartz Among Meteorologists Battered by Storm
These meteorologists often risk their lives when reporting on major storms.
Covering a hurricane is no easy task, even for seasoned weather reporters.
As Hurricane Florence slams into the Carolinas, reporters have found themselves in the center of the story — and the storm.
ABC Chief Meteorologist Ginger Zee found the situation a little too dangerous while reporting for the network Thursday from a balcony. She was eventually forced to leave the area.
Fifteen minutes later, she revealed that the balcony floor had ripped up beneath her.
MSNBC's Gadi Schwartz was also faced with strong winds, and viewers expressed concern for his safety.
"Please let the weather man on Radio Island come inside!" one tweet read. "He has been in the storm for hours and is getting ravaged! Dangerous!!!"
"Get him inside!" another viewer said. "Get him outta there!"
Major storms like Florence inevitably cause technical challenges.
Meteorologists reporting from the hard-hit city of New Bern, North Carolina, were the last to evacuate their station.
