Fake Weather?

I once lived on the gulf coast and have experienced a hurricane as it land. It's very serious and can cause massive amounts of damage, not to mention spawning of tornado's. The Weather Channel's Mike Seidel was reporting on Hurricane Florence from Wilmington, NC fighting the heavy wind and rain! Behind him you see two guys walking like it's just a light sprinkle. So why is he exaggerating how bad this storm is? Is it for ratings? Just report the weather and stop with the fake stuff.

This video has now been viewed by over 4 million people. If you did this as a publicity stunt, Great job Weather Channel!
