Transcript for Reporter's Notebook feat. Gio Benitez
Speaking of great storytellers GO Benitez is here with us this morning and Shockey and been very busy on the road covering some of our top stories in so let's take a look at what you've been Shelley. This wind is blowing from side to side. You just don't know where it's coming from that is why it just so dangerous I just want to reassert the people I ever wrote down. We are all on in a secure building surrounded by concrete. But this is an unbelievable thing that we're seeing here. Adored I have to be honest I've never seen anything like that. Covering storms here it though the wind is just whipping around what we're also seeing is that we're seeing branches pieces of three. Come from this guy. Obviously threes aren't all there would mean that a lot of these three are sort of whipping around and coming around like that that's exactly why we backed away. Here well. We compare it. These winds are really intense care I mean. You can defeat us. I want to take a look look at those you can see this why don't they in this white out condition that Amy was talking about. Just look at I mean this is something I don't think I ever would have described a hurricane at sort of compared to a blizzard. That's what this looks like here and and it's just really remarkable. I actually brought my mother to this building here because I knew this would be much more secure in the house that she was staying at you've seen those homes those pictures of those homes over a few west. And the construction of old is very very different. Go flying near Miami. I don't know if those homes have been tested. Oh win. That's wrong and at that thought. That's right Kate I have a family affair and and they chose not to leave doors of them. You know as you're covering hurricane RO what was it like for you to be in that area to be from that area and watching it can damage that way do you know it was tough especially not knowing what was happening in the keys because nobody had any communications people weren't there. What was happening the Florida Keys and and my family was there but but thankfully everybody's okay but we also. Covered right before that Texas and it was incredible to see the American spirit in action on full display. When we saw these people coming together from all over the place with her little boats. And you were to spring in their own fuel paying for this and picking people laugh and helping them. And police say.
