Anderson Cooper Live From Tampa, FL on Sunday, September 10, 2017


Anderson Cooper began his day anchoring CNN Newsroom at 10amET.  Anderson was in Tampa and John Berman was in Miami.   At times it appeared Mr. Berman would be swept out to sea!   John, Anderson, Chris Cuomo and other CNN anchors and correspondents filled the next two hours of Newsroom.  Anderson was scheduled to anchor the NoonET hour, but apparently the schedule changed as Jake Tapper anchored from the DC studio.  He went to Anderson one time, when Anderson was interviewing Tampa Mayor, Bob Buckhorn, but Tapper even cut in and took over that interview.  (Notice at the end of the clip Tapper called Hurricane Irma, Hurricane Irene before correcting himself.):



Chris Cuomo moved to Naples, Florida and ended up being in the middle of the storm when it made landfall later in the afternoon.  Anderson finished his daytime anchor duties with the 2pmET hour.  It was during that hour that he interview Senator Bill Nelson:



Anderson was back in the 7pmET hour and anchored three hours of AC360.  The time was mostly spent checking in with other CNN anchors and correspondents as Hurricane Irma made it's way up the Florida Peninsula, weakening along the way but still managing to create damage along the way.


Anderson was back on with Don Lemon on CNN Tonight in the 10pmET hour:


and the 11pmET hour:

By the 11pm ET hour Anderson was looking not only tired, but pretty wet!



Many people ventured out onto the Tampa Riverwalk and posted photos of Anderson anchoring to Instagram:

hmph at Tapper. I have been annoyed with his for a while now, especially when he defended interviewing Gorka after he insulted anderson saying "well, he didn't insult me" also hmph at ana

But excellent work by Anderson and team. And Thank God FL was spared the worst.

SOME SPOTS IN FLORIDA WERE DEVASTATED AND WERE NOT SPARED THE WORST. BUT AT LEAST IT WASN'T HARVEY. THE BIGGEST PROBLEM FLORIDA HAS, BESIDES LOSS OF THE KEYS, IS POWER. POWER IS THE BIGGEST HURDLE DURING A MAJOR STORM. I'VE LIVED THROUGH POWER OUTAGES FOR AS MUCH AS 48 HOURS
AND IT WAS DURING THE WINTER. BELIEVE ME, IT IS NO FUN.
IN FLORIDA THE WEATHER IS HOT, STICKY, AND HUMID WITH MANY INSECTS, INSECTS THAT YOU WOULDN'T WANT TO SEE EVEN WITH AIR CONDITIONING. BUT AT LEAST FLORIDA WOULDN'T BE SUBJECT TO STAGNANT DIRTY WATER LIKE TEXAS. FLORIDA IS VITAL TO THE U S ECONOMY SO IT WILL BE UP AND RUNNING ASAP.
GOOD TO SEE ANDERSON OUT AND ABOUT AFTER BEING HOLED UP FOR SO LONG WITH IDIOTIC PANEL MEMBERS. HE MUST FEEL LIKE HE DIED AND WENT TO HEAVEN, EVEN WITH FLYING DEBRIS AND MURKY WATER!
