Video of Weather Network reporters getting blown off-camera in Grand Etang in Wednesday's storm has gone viral.

Reporters Mark Robinson and Chris Scott were doing a standup during a live blizzard update from Grand Etang when the powerful Les Suêtes winds blew them off camera. In less than 24 hours, it garnered more than 72,000 views on YouTube.

They were explaining that winds were gusting to about 170 km/hr at the time when they were blown over.

"We're fine," Scott said, after helping Robinson back up.
