Think you're having a bad day? Probably not as bad Patrick Oppmann, the reporter from CNN charged with reporting on Hurricane Irma live from Cuba as the storm hit. CNN, perhaps in an effort to warn Floridians of the incoming storm's power, tweeted out a clip of Oppmann's various struggles to broadcast as Irma roared by the island.
Does Patrick Oppmann and his crew get hazard pay for going out into a storm like this?— Nai Mei Yao (@naimeiyao) September 9, 2017
This poor dude can report the weather just as well from inside a building with a large, thick window or something, right?— Mike Wood (@MWood919) September 9, 2017
I think Patrick ... its time to put the camera on hold & evacuate.....?— Author DeAnn DeVille (@DeAnnDeVille1) September 9, 2017
It looks like things were pretty bad for Oppmann, but when times are tough it's important to remember: things can always get worse.
