The video titled “Florida reporter defends putting condom on mic during Hurricane Ian broadcast,” has been retweeted over 500 times and received over 3k likes on social media platform Twitter.

“A lot of people are asking what is on the microphone,” the reporter said.

“It is what you think it is.”

She adds: “It’s a condom!

“It protects the gear, we can’t get these mics wet.

“There’s a lot of wind, a lot of rain.

“We’ve got to do, what we’ve got to do!”

Holding the mic close to the camera, she adds: “And that is, put a condom on the microphone.”

People on Twitter commented on the video.

“It’s 2022. No one has taken the time to develop something specifically for this? 🤦‍♀️” one person said.

“I came across this beauty and had the hardiest laughs I’ve had lately…” said another person.

As reported on Wednesday, September 28, Hurricane Ian was on the brink of becoming a monster Category 5 storm.

Hurricane Ian battered parts of western Florida and was being tipped to become a monster Category 5 storm.

It had already been upgraded from category 3 to 4 and looked like it could turn into one of the worst hurricanes to ever hit the United States.

During the chaos in Florida due to the hurricane, a seal was also spotted running the streets.

Another viral video which has been making the rounds on social media was old footage of US President Joe Biden declaring “a vital part of preparing for hurricane season is to get vaccinated now”.

The footage, which shows Biden speaking to reporters in August 2021, has gone viral again.

He said: “Let me be clear if you’re in a state where hurricanes often strike, like Florida, the Gulf Coast, or into Texas, a vital part of preparing for hurricane season is to get vaccinated now.

“Everything is more complicated if you’re not vaccinated when a natural disaster hits.”
