On Thursday, Rob shared an update on the storm as he stood on the beach in Jensen Beach, Florida.

The Connecticut native explained the damage caused by the rare end-of-season weather event while holding back debris that washed ashore.

Videos and photos were also shown on the screen showing major flooding and destruction in the aftermath of the storm.

Watching the report, fans on Good Morning America worried about the TV personality as the waves crashed along the fence behind him.

Rob gave people at home another look at the treacherous weather on the East Coast while reporting from Atlanta, Georgia on Friday.

The meteorologist detailed what was to come while standing on the rainy downtown sidewalk.

Rob’s followers also got a glimpse of the dangerous conditions after the TV star shared numerous photos and videos on his Instagram Stories.

In one clip, the father-of-two was blown away by the waves as he reported along the choppy waters.

The reporter didn’t seem fazed by the dipping, as he looked away for a moment before returning his attention to the camera.

OVERCOMING THE STORM

In another snap, Rob posed with ABC producer Brandon Baur and cameraman Mike Ladisa, who were all smiles, despite looking drenched in the rainy weather.

Rob also posted live footage of himself climbing the stairs of his hotel as fierce winds pounded the structure.

He told his 86,300 followers, “So a little behind the scenes here…you hear that?”

He then took a dramatic break to let his followers listen to the eerie sounds coming from outside as Hurricane Nicole ripped through.

The GMA anchor explained, “It’s the wind beating against the building as I ascend the seven floors of the stairwell.

“They closed the elevators for security reasons. But don’t worry!”

Elevators are often taken out of service during hurricanes to prevent people from getting stuck in the event of a power outage.

HAZARDOUS CONDITIONS

At least four people were killed after Hurricane Nicole made landfall early Thursday morning.

Two people in Orange County died after being electrocuted by a downed power line, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office said.

Mayor Jerry Demings also confirmed that two other people died in a car crash on Florida’s turnpike in what are likely storm-related fatalities.

Heavy rain and winds have forced nearly 500 flight cancellations in Orlando and left tens of thousands of people without power.

Footage from the state showed what appeared to be sharks swimming through the flooded streets.
