If you been paying any attention at all to the news lately, you are familiar with hurricane Florence. The weather stations began reporting on this hurricane when it was just a tropical storm out in the Atlantic and as it turned into a very large storm, they continued to report on it as it was bearing down on the Carolina coastline. It seemed as if that was all that captivated our attention, especially if we lived in an area that was going to be affected by it.
It seems as if we all watch the weather, however, and it doesn’t matter if there is a storm brewing or if we just want to see what is going to be like outside in our area, we trust the meteorologists to bring us the truth. The problem is, there are going to be times when the weather station is more interested in ratings than they are about bringing us the news about what is taking place outside. That is seen in this rather interesting video.
This video was shared on Twitter and when you see it, you may begin to doubt everything that you ever heard about hurricane Florence. It shows Mike Seidel from the weather Channel having a very difficult time standing up in what appears to be ferocious winds. The problem is, there are two young men walking behind him at a very comfortable, relaxed pace.

There were others who also saw the same thing on TV and caught a video of it
It has yet to be seen if the weatherman is just out in the roughest part of the winds or if he is actually faking it to sensationalize the news story. Regardless of what it was, it certainly doesn’t boost his ‘coolness factor’.
The Weather Channel has since issued an update saying: “It’s important to note that the two individuals in the background are walking on concrete, and Mike Seidel is trying to maintain his footing on wet grass, after reporting on-air until 1:00 a.m. ET this morning and is undoubtedly exhausted.”
There is no doubt that a hurricane can cause a lot of problems but seeing this guy laying it on a little thick isn’t helping matters.
