Reporter "Bracing For His Life" Against Hurricane Florence Goes Viral


The video, which shows the Weather Channel's Mike Seidel appearing to be nearly swept away by gusty winds from Hurricane Florence as two people walk casually by behind him, has received global attention for his "Oscar-worthy" performance.

On Friday, Weather Channel reporter Mike Siedel warned viewers that the wind speeds were "about as nasty as it's been" as he "struggled" to maintain his balance.

The Weather Channel responded to criticism saying that exhaustion and slippery conditions made it hard for their reporter to stand.

The amusing clip of reporter Paul Goodloe went viral on Twitter on Friday after it was posted by @gourdnibler with the caption, "So dramatic!"

"He moves in ways that don't look like wind is pushing him at all", one person said on Twitter. Too bad for Seidel, two people soon walk behind him in the frame, strolling normally and by no means hindered by any winds.

The video generated a series of mixed reactions from people on social media, with many calling out the journalist for allegedly overstating the impact of the storm.

Thousands of comments of "fake news" and the likes followed for days but it appears mere comments were not enough to ridicule the Weather Channel.
