Watch: Foolhardy boatie videobombs Hurricane Michael live news broadcast

Despite Florida being battered by a Category-4 storm in Hurricane Michael, one eager boatie took the opportunity to hit the water this morning.

During the middle of MSNBC's live news cross to the affected areas, a dinghy could be seen sailing through the background of the shot, seemingly unaffected by the devastating weather conditions hammering the regions.

Georgia Governor Nathan Deal said the storm is "unlike any storm that we have had in anybody's memory", while FEMA Administrator Brock Long described Michael as "a hurricane of the worst kind".

Thousands of people along Florida's northern Gulf Coast have heeded warnings to evacuate, and many are cramming into high schools put to use as shelters.
