Local reporter barely standing in storm

Local Reporter Barely Standing In Storm

This is what we call commitment. Check out WHIO reporter Gabrielle Enright on the scene in Ohio.

News anchor Leticia Perry turned it over to Gabrielle, saying, "Lightning and heavy rain in the area. Gabrielle?"

"The wind is blowing very hard. It just broke my umbrella," Gabrielle answered.

The amazing thing here is work ethic -- she literally weathered the storm. 'CBS This Morning's' team even seemed ready to steal her from WHIO.

"If I [were] a news director, I would hire her immediately," one CBS anchor said.

This all went down Tuesday in New Lebanon, Ohio. WKEF reported flash flood warnings in the area that morning.

The weather forecast had called for AM thunderstorms -- sounds about right.

Enright had a great sense of humor about it all. She tweeted this screenshot of herself and said, if you weren't watching WHIO, you missed this.

Our favorite part might be WHIO's headline, though -- that Enright was "surprised by strength of storm." Yes, indeed. You can see the whole video on the station's website -- it's worth a watch.

Can we request that Gabby give it another a go? WDTN says the area is set for more storms this weekend.

I'm not sure why this one is so special or different. I've seen this plenty of times.

Aww, and she's cute, too although I am certain many of the following comments will be all about her body size. Sad, mean comments. Sigh.

Why or why is a reporter EVER standing out in a storm??? And one with lightning??? Or the hurricane shots like with Al Roker and Brian Williams being blowing away. What does that prove, that it's really wet and we couldnt figure that out???

Ah, Seattle, you forgot Jim Cantore from The Weather Channel. Everytime we have a hurricane in FL, there is Jim, standing out in winds blowing Warp 10 and he announces to the viewers how "windy" it is. Love you Jim but come on inside for a bit. I have lived in FL since '52 and even I don't venture out in the wind. Welll, there was one time after Hurricane Betsy in '65 but the surf was really up and I could not resist.

As large as she is, there wasn't much danger of her being blown away.

Because of course appearance is way more important than content.

You know it's really bad when Jim Cantore shows up in your town.
