The video shows The Weather Channel's Mike Seidel reporting from Wilmington in North Carolina, USA, reports AJC. The video was posted on Twitter and since then the Twitterati can't keep calm. "Dude from the weather channel bracing for his life, as 2 dudes just stroll past".

The video, which shows the Weather Channel's Mike Seidel appearing to be nearly swept away by gusty winds from Hurricane Florence as two people walk casually by behind him, has received global attention for his "Oscar-worthy" performance.

Hurricane Florence has brought turbulent weather, power outages and flooding to the U.S. east coast - but it's also proved an opportunity for one weather station to show off a little bit.

Forecasters warned that drenching rains of up to 3 feet (approximately 1 metre) as the 90mph (145km/h) storm crawls westward across North and SC could trigger epic flooding well inland over the next few days.

The deadly storm made landfall on the east coast of the U.S. on Friday bringing with it "biblical" flooding on what's been described as a "thousand-year rain event".

Apparently, the wrath of the storm was only hitting Seidel and not the two men behind him. The clip reportedly went viral on Twitter, with tweets accusing Seidel of exaggerating for dramatic effect.

But the National Hurricane Center still warns that the storm poses a major risk to people in the Carolinas with "life-threatening storm surges" and "catastrophic freshwater flooding". Hundreds of thousands of people have also lost power.

"This storm is going to continue its violent grind across our state for days. Do NOT go out into this storm", Cooper said.
