Seidel shot his 20,000th live shot during a snowstorm on January 12, 2018.

Seidel received some media attention in 2018 while reporting from North Carolina during Hurricane Florence after a video was published showing him bracing his feet against the wind while two men casually walked by in the background. Twitter users and some amusing news headlines suggested that Seidel was exaggerating the severity of the winds.

“It’s important to note that the two individuals in the background are walking on concrete, and Mike Seidel is trying to maintain his footing on wet grass, after reporting on-air until 1:00 a.m. ET this morning and is undoubtedly exhausted,” The Weather Channel responded.
