Staying warm in a bright blue ABC News jacket, Rob began his segment by saying: “It was a tough 12 hours here in the mid-south. Not just those tornadoes but a widespread damaging wind of that.
He then pointed to some of the damage behind him and continued: “You see the roof, a corrugated steel roof of this home ripped off and on top of really an old growth tree.”
Walking over to a car, Rob added: “Lots of trees down all over this place, the power of this storm. This rear windshield blown out, this is one of at least 20 homes battling, damaged, or destroyed here in Kirby.
“And then look at this, a two by six piece of wood here just piercing this windshield. this was probably a tornado, but who knows? It came in the middle of the night,” he said as he walked amongst the damage.
Fans were clearly delighted to see Rob back on Good Morning America, as one person replied to a video clip on Twitter and said: “What happened to @RobMarciano reporting weather more often?”
Rob is the senior meteorologist on ABC News but he also appears on Good Morning America Weekend and occasionally reports on the latest weather headlines in the week too.
Last month, he left fans worried when he shared dramatic photos while on location in Louisiana.
Rob had been filming live from Tangipahoa, where a dangerous tornado had decimated homes and businesses.
The father-of-two gave his 88.5k Instagram followers an insight into the damage when he shared two photos.
The first image showed a house that had been absolutely destroyed by the tornado, but luckily not injured the person who lived there.
Alongside the picture of the ruined property, Rob wrote: “The man inside this home during as the tornado hit is uninjured wow.”
The second image shared by Rob showed the front of a restaurant, that had completely collapsed onto a silver parked car.
“BIG BISS GOT BANGED UP BY [tornado emoji],” Rob captioned the shocking photo.
GMA viewers were saddened by the news and also urged Rob to stay out of harm’s way.
Taking to Twitter, one person said: “So much sad news! Please be safe, Rob!!!”
Another person wrote: “So very sad!!! Prayers for your safety and protection as well! Please take care of you!!!”
When Rob isn’t away working, he’s usually spending time with his kids at home in his modest $3,250-a-month apartment in Harrison, New York.
The TV star began renting the apartment after selling the $2.7million mansion he shared with his estranged wife, Eryn.
The U.S. Sun exclusively revealed Rob is living in a 2,000-square-foot apartment that boasts three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Rob began renting the apartment in November 2021 for $3,250 a month.
The U.S. Sun broke that Rob’s wife of 11 years, Eryn, filed for divorce on June 18, 2021.
The divorce remains ongoing for the couple, who married in November 2010.
The ex-couple sold their marital mansion in Rye, New York, on July 1, 2022.
The five-bedroom, six-bathroom home sold for $2.7million.
They purchased the house for $2million in February 2019.
