As Hurricane Ida approaches, weather watchers are wondering where meteorologist Jim Cantore is.

Cantore, 57, is known for heading to the heart of the action – or the eye of the storm – when a weather disaster hits the United States.

The Weather Channel meteorologist has been reporting for the network since 1986. Since then, Cantore has been on hand for live field coverage of major weather events. Some of the disastrous events Cantore has covered include Hurricanes Ike, Katrina, Irene, and Sandy.

With Hurricane Ida barreling towards the Gulf Coast this August 2021, you might be curious as to Jim Cantore’s location.
