Hurricane Ian and “The Weather Channel”: The Jim Cantore Effect

Hurricane Ian and < /p> UPDATE DAY

When Jim Cantore arrives, the evacuation order comes in stride. It's that the star weather presenter of the American channel Weather Channel is a real bird of misfortune, but also, and above all, a seasoned meteorologist ready to risk everything to inform the Americans.  

First of all, we hope he's doing well, because he's been receiving a lot since the arrival of Ian from Florida.

By really, I mean REALLY.

Obviously, this kind of behavior is the source of all kinds of memes on the internet.

Meme about American weatherman Jim Cantore.

It is that beyond these striking videos and funny images, the presenter is adored by Americans for his ability to popularize the whims of Mother Nature, as USA Today reminds us in a long file today.

Known as the Weather Channel's first tornado chaser in the United States, Jim Cantore has served as the Atlanta-based network's most recognizable personality for more than 35 years old.

He has been involved in all the weather disasters that have affected Uncle Sam in recent decades Sandy, Harvey, Katrina, etc. Everyone has experienced the passage of this harbinger of bad omen for local populations.

For the president of the Weather Group, Nora Zimmet, Cantore does not never wanted to be a celebrity. She tells USA Today that he's simply a “super cool, super smart, weather-obsessed science nerd.”

Originally from Connecticut, having grown up in Vermont, working mainly in Atlanta and traveling where the weather is not good, Cantore also serves as a presenter for the bulletins of the American Weather Channel and is therefore often where we should not be.

Then comes the question that everyone is asking, how does this presenter manage to stay alive despite all this risk-taking? 

He explains to the daily USA Today have never been seriously injured, and that all necessary precautions are nevertheless being taken to keep him and his crews safe.

Apart from all those hurricanes, this seasoned reporter has also covered Moore's deadly tornadoes in Oklahoma, and Joplin, Missouri. It will also perhaps cover the return of this cat to its family, another highlight video of the day.

Ian is only just beginning to wreak havoc in Florida, and, as scientist Gary Lackmann reminds AFP: “A consensus remains that there will be fewer storms in the future, but the larger ones will be more intense.”
