TV Reporters Standing in the Path of Hurricanes, Getting Blown Around, Becoming Famous

From a Washington Post story by Paul Farhi headlined “TV reporters standing in hurricanes: A national tradition”:

There was Jim Cantore, the Weather Channel’s intrepid storm reporter, very much in his element. Standing in the path of Hurricane Ian in Punta Gorda, Fla., on Wednesday, Cantore was getting lashed by rain and blown around by the wind when a flying tree branch kneecapped him in full view of his camera crew.

“You gonna be all right?” asked an unseen anchor as Cantore staggered to a street sign, holding on in the wind.
