    The massive storm, which hit the southern part of the US a day earlier, has become the most powerful hurricane to strike the country in almost 50 years, beginning with the death of one man in Florida.

    A meteorologist from Florida, Jim Cantore, during his coverage from Panama City barely evaded a dangerous collision with a 2x4. The reporter saw the piece of wood, blown by the hurricane, and managed to jump aside just a second before it hit the place where he was standing.

    ​The weatherman continued his coverage, but only after putting on a helmet in case the hurricane were to thrust more dangerous debris his way.
