When Jim Cantore arrives, the evacuation order comes in stride. It’s just the star weather presenter of the American channel Weather Channel is a true bird of misfortune, but also, and above all, an experienced meteorologist ready to take all risks to inform the Americans.

First of all, we hope he is doing well, because he has received a lot since the arrival of Ian from Florida.
Ian’s winds and record storm surge pose a dangerous threat for those living along Florida’s west coast, as well as for those covering this monster storm. @JimCantore of the @weatherchannel experienced the dangers of covering a storm this large firsthand in Punta Gorda. pic.twitter.com/OlEWaNNTYT

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 recalled USA Today 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.
He has been involved in all the weather disasters that have affected Uncle Sam in recent decades Sandy, Harvey, Katrina, etc. All have experienced the passage of this harbinger of bad omen for the local populations.
For Weather Group president Nora Zimmet, Cantore never wanted to be a celebrity. She tells USA Today that he’s simply a “super cool, super smart, weather-enthusiast science nerd.”
Originally from Connecticut, having grown up in Vermont, working mainly in Atlanta and wandering 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 USA Today that he has never been seriously injured, and that all the necessary precautions are nevertheless taken to keep him and his teams safe.
Apart from all these hurricanes, this seasoned journalist also covered the deadly tornadoes of Moore in Oklahoma, and Joplin in Missouri. It will also perhaps cover the return of this cat and its master to the house, 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 bigger ones will be more intense. .”
