This was spoofed in a sitcom last year, I think it was called "The 
Class."  The character Holly Ellenbogen played a local TV reporter 
and, in one episode, was shown reporting outdoors during a hurricane, 
with her hair in her face, and, in the end of the scene, being struck 
by a flying road sign.
