With Hurricane Irma having officially hit parts of Florida, people all over the state have either evacuated or hunkered down in preparation for what's to come.

That said, while most do their best to stay as far away from Irma as possible, networks have sent reporters into the eye of the storm so they can give viewers firsthand updates.

And as a result, they're finding themselves in some pretty dangerous situations, as you can see below:

Just take a look at this reporter who is telling people not to go outside, while he's outside:

Or journalist Miguel Almaguer, who literally harnessed himself to a building so he could report the news without blowing away:

While Almaguer's contraption was pretty ingenious, many argued there must be a safer way to report the news:

Others began highly criticizing the networks for putting their staffs in harm's way as if reporters are immortal to these storms:

Reporter or not, everyone needs to do their best to stay as safe as possible during the storm.

The Independent Journal Review will keep you updated on Irma.

William QuinionFor all those who have allowed that portion of  their brain where LOGIC and REASON are located to lie dorment and SACRIFICE  their sorry butt's to the same or similar FATE of that of TEXAS, please for the  sake of all TRUE AMERICAN'S, CONSIDER the following explnation??? If, as  previously stated in my explanation of Global Warming, the Earth's Axis was  through whatever mean's, tilted toward the Sun exposing the summer season around  the world to taking up more sea water through evaporation by the more direct  exposure to the sun's ray's even though the Earth was further from the Sun  creating CLOUD formation's like I have never seen before in all my 79 year's???  The cloud's can only hold just so much water before releasing it as demonstrated  by the wet and DRY season's of the past as related in the BIble story of Joseph  interpreting Pharoah's DREAM and the VARIOUS SYSTERN'S built by the early  settler's to catch rain water in the dry season's,RIGHT??? With winter coming  on, the Earth will be closer to the Sun but with the Earth's Axis still tilted  AWAY from the sun, it will receive less direct ray's making the season's COLDER  with snow and ICE lasting longer, heating system's operating longer, more power  failure's due to the accumilation of ICE on the wire's, and possible breaking of  GAS line's,RIGHT???  If you want hurricain Harvey to become a Harvey  Wallbanger and leave our planet in a state of STUPER controlled by STUPID  Rioter's and Hater's keeping TRUMP from doing his BEST DETERMINATION for our  NATION, Just BEND over , put your head's between your LEG'S and KISS your SORRY  ASS'S --- GOODBYE,RIGHT???  Don't blame it on the [ One TRUE GOD ] for it is  your own action's or lack therove in holding your Representative's accountable  from the local authority's, all the way to the TOP,RIGHT???
