Reporter Ted Oberg was hit by flying debris during a live shot covering Hurricane Florence.
- Oberg, who normally works as an investigative reporter for ABC O&O KTRK in Houston, was dispatched to the storm zone.
- He was appearing on sister station and fellow ABC O&O KCBS in Los Angeles when he was hit with what appears to be metal and wood debris.
- Oberg was not injured in the event.
- Oberg continued his reporting, actually standing on top of the debris for the rest of the live shot, as the anchors back across the country asked if he was OK.
