KTRK reporter Ted Oberg is OK after being hit by a large piece of storm debris during coverage.

The Houston-based reporter is in Wilmington covering the storm for ABC stations across the country.

Oberg was in the middle of a live shot for KABC when he was hit by a piece of metal roof.


“I’m OK. We’re OK. I’m not cut.” Oberg said about himself and his photographer, David Aguillard.

On Twitter he said it was “a surprise but we’re ok.”

His photographer was also unharmed.
