I know Cap, they are calling for serious rainfall here beginning late Wednesday and into Thursday, with some possible flooding.

Jim Cantore appears to be in trouble.


'THEY THOUGHT WE WERE SAFE'

Inside The Weather Channel

An amazing phone call just aired on The Weather Channel a few minutes ago from Jim Cantore's producer, Simon Temperton. The two of them are at the Armed Forces Retirement Home in Gulfport, Miss. (current conditions), where they have sought refuge from rapidly rising floodwaters on the second floor along with 300-400 residents of the home.

Here's some of what Simon reported in his phone call:

"We're going through some unbelievable conditions. Water is seeping into the building. I'd say we've had at least a 20-feet [of] storm surge. It has washed away all our rental cars, and everything else [in the parking lot]...

"Now water is seeping into the home and they are evacuating everyone to the second floor. I'm standing in 5 or 6 inches of water [on the second floor]. The power is out. There are a few emergency lights. It's a very daunting prospect right now....

"It's a very dangerous situation. I've been doing this for 15 years, and [I've] been Mr. Cantore's producer for many hurricanes, and I've never seen anything like this. This is probably the scariest situation we've ever been in -- just the sudden rise of water and how fast. They said we were good here for 27, 30 feet [of storm surge] -- they've never seen anything like it. They thought we were completely safe.

"We're not even shooting [video] anymore. We're basically in self-preservation [mode] right now. We're helping people put up boards and sandbags to keep the water from coming in. We've become part of the crew.

"In the time we've been talking, the water has risen, I'd say, another 3 inches. It's up to the top of my boots. The water keeps rising."

I wish them the best but it's only a matter of time before something like this would happen. I thought a reporter would be killed on the air before now! Kinda morbid I guess but look at the number of reporters out in each and every Hurricane reporting in Hurricane force winds! Steve Harrigan (FOX) is leaning into the winds and can't even talk...Shep Smith (FOX) is in the French Quarter where it's suppose to flood! It's only a matter of time folks!! #-o
