Today’s Al Roker Claps Back at Claim He’s “Too Old” to Cover Hurricane Ida

The weatherman, who was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2020, also later explained in a tweet of his own that everyone can rest assured knowing that he and his crew are completely safe and sound.
 
“For all those who were worried about me out on #lakepontchartrain covering #Ida,” he wrote alongside a clip of himself pouring out water from the inside of his rainboots. “I volunteered to do this. Part of the job,” he wrote, adding, “My crew and I were safe and back at our hotel.”
 
And last but not least, the veteran newscaster reinforced his original counter point, adding, “For those who think I’m too old to be doing this, try and keep up.”
