A major hurricane made landfall across Florida’s Big Bend this past week, the first time a storm of that strength has hit the region since the 1800s. Hurricane Idalia went from a Category 1 hurricane to a powerful Category 3 in just a matter of hours overnight and came crashing ashore Wednesday morning near Keaton Beach.

FOX Weather’s Hurricane Specialist and Florida resident, Bryan Norcross joins Janice to share his reporting on the horrific storm, detail the important role broadcast meteorologists play, and recall some of the other notable hurricanes he has witnessed throughout his career.
