Hurricane Irma: TV Reporter Almost Thrown Off Balance By High-Speed Winds

ABS TV Radio Antigua & Barbuda reported live as Hurricane Irma made landfall


The category 5 storm Irma, described as "potentially catastrophic", made landfall on Wednesday lashing the small islands of Antigua and Barbuda. The island of Barbuda, home to 1,800 people, was "totally demolished", according to television reports from the islands. 90% of all homes were destroyed as the deadly hurricane pounded the dual-island nation.

A report by a journalist from Antigua and Barbuda's State broadcaster ABS TV and Radio showed the wrath of Hurricane Irma as it hit the tiny island. The journalist who signed off as Steve Freeland, reported from an open field which he says gives a "picturesque view" of the conditions. The reporter, surprisingly upbeat despite the dangerous situation at hand, swayed as high-speed winds hit him.

"I'm good, I'm good," he exclaimed while struggling to keep his balance.

The clip uploaded 24 hours ago, from the broadcaster's late night update, was just hours after Hurricane Irma made landfall on the islands.
 
 
 

At least 14 people have been reported dead by Hurricane Irma which is expected to hit Florida on Sunday as a powerful Category 4 storm.
