Watch: Jim Cantore of The Weather Channel nearly impaled by storm debris

It’s what Jim Cantore does. When a hurricane kicks up, the Weather Channel meteorologist runs right into the middle of it. During Hurricane Michael on Wednesday (Oct. 10), however, Cantore apparently came dangerously close to proving why it’s never a good idea to be outside in the middle of a hurricane.

A video that went viral shortly after the Category 4 hurricane made landfall around midday shows Cantore stepping outside during a live segment from Panama City Beach, Florida, to demonstrate the strength of the storm.

“It’s relentless,” the video shows Cantore shouting over the roar of the wind.
