Hurricane Ian made landfall on Florida’s west coast on Wednesday as a category 4 storm, as reported by The Gateway Pundit.
The eye of the storm hit Cape Coral Wednesday with maximum sustained winds of 155 miles per hour.
During a live broadcast, two weather reporters were hammered by the strong winds of a category 4 hurricane.
Jim Cantore, a reporter for the Weather Channel, was almost blown away and hit by a flying tree branch as he tried to show how strong Hurricane Ian was.

Weather Channel anchor pleads with Jim Cantore to get off the street.
“Come on in for some cover, my man. We can have a conversation when you’re under some cover. That’s too much,” the anchor said.
Another weather reporter Mike Seidel, got hammered during a live broadcast.
