'I'm not cut:' Storm debris hits reporter during Hurricane Florence live shot

WILMINGTON, North Carolina -- During the live coverage of Hurricane Florence in Wilmington, North Carolina, ABC13's Ted Oberg was hit with a big piece of storm debris.

Ted, from our sister station in Houston, was answering a question from an anchor at one of our other sister stations, KABC, when a gust of wind picked up what appeared to be metal from part of a roof, and hit him.

"I'm ok. We're ok. I'm not cut," Ted said as he tried to hold on to it to keep it from flying away. "I'm going to let this go, and I'm going to let you go."

The ABC family is thankful he and his photographer David Aguillard were not injured.
