As the meteorologist attempts live reporting during Hurricane Ian, a man who claimed to “always wait mother nature’s next temper tantrum” has been thrown to the ground.

Jim Cantore, who is struggling to stay upright in high winds and heavy rainfall, is swiftly brought to his knees and lowered by an incoming branch of a tree.

Cantore quickly recovers and tries to walk toward a street sign, where he can anchor himself as he speaks to the people in the studio.

As he approaches the pole, he said: “I’m just going in here for one second.”

A voice in the newsroom asks him if he is okay as he struggles to stand before the camera.

‘I’m alright, I’m fine. He replies, “I just can’t get up,” before finally getting his feet under control towards the end.

Cantore, who has appeared in viral videos since 2014 for his work, is not a stranger to the phenomenon. The veteran meteorologist has worked with the channel for over 35 years.
