Weather Channel reporter shamed for "faking it" in the Florence winds


WASHINGTON (Circa) - Hurricane Florence has hit hard across the Carolinas, but not as hard as this Weather Channel reporter made it seem.

The viral video shows Weather Channel correspondent Mike Seidel live from North Carolina fighting the wind. Social media users say that the two men that can be seen walking with no problem in the background allude to Seidel being "overdramatic."

In a statement to various media outlets, the Weather Channel defended Seidel's report.

“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,” the network said.
