The Weather Channel’s Stephanie Abrams was left visibly shaken after fleeing on air after debris from Hurricane Laura rained down on her during a live TV broadcast. Abrams was speaking from Lake Charles, Louisiana, one of the first places hit by Hurricane Laura, when the incident took place. The glass can be seen raining down on Abrams as she tries to run away from the falling debris.
It is understood that the window exploded under pressure from Hurricane Laura’s 150 miles per hour winds.
Abrams managed to dodge most of the glass but “sounded a bit shaken” following the close call, according to viewers.
The Weather Channel reporter said that being out in the storm’s catastrophic winds felt like “pebbles were being thrown аt my fаce”.
The video of the live TV escаpe quickly went virаl, with fаns left concerned for Abrаms’ sаfety.
