The dramatics were on high during his report.

Hurricane Florence has been doing some pretty heavy damage to the Carolinas and preparation for it was nothing but serious.

The weather reporting on the storm has been pretty good too, however one reporter decided to deploy some dramatics while reporting on the now-tropical storm.

In Wilmington, North Carolina, Weather Channel reporter Mike Seidel went viral for his in the field (or in the storm) reporting. Video shows him constantly shifting his feet while bracing against the winds. “This is about as nasty as it’s been,” he says in the clip. It looks like he’s in quite the battle with Florence, well, until context comes strolling through.

In the middle of the video, two men can be seen casually walking in the background as if it was no big deal, and maybe it was.

Mike, if you’re gonna do the most, make sure there’s no one behind you to offset it. He was really struggling lol.
