Egyptian presenter ridiculed for saying she ‘changed Hurricane Irma’s path’

Published: Updated:

An Egyptian presenter on Al-Hadath Al-Youm television channel has been receiving flak from both her colleagues at other networks and viewers in general after she said she was personally responsible for changing Hurricane Irma’s path in Florida some weeks ago.

The Egyptian presenter named Lubna Ahmed, whose program “Karma” focuses on energy and the general sciences, blatantly spoke with confidence on how her team were able to change the hurricane’s course in order to help one of her viewers trapped in a town in Florida.

Ahmed said she received a call from an Arab woman living in Florida who was terrified as the hurricane approached the area where she resides in. The presenter then said that the “hurricane was re-directed to the Gulf of Mexico thanks to her intervention to reduce its strength and energy”.

The presenter said that with the help of one of her energy workers named Ahmed Shaaban, they were able to change the course of the hurricane and reduce its energy and direct it to “the Gulf of Mexico where there are no human beings living there”.

A clip of Ahmed saying so has caused a lot of reactions on social media in Egypt where many were quick to ridicule here through their comments. Many users confirmed that the Al-Hadath Al-Youm has appeared frequently on several Egyptian satellite channels as a science expert.
