While reporting on Hurricane Michael’s destruction from Panama City, Florida Thursday morning, ABC News’ Rob Marciano showed off four kittens that were rescued from the storm.
He said he spoke to a family who rode out the storm, who found the kittens when their roof collapsed, and the baby felines “fell out of the ceiling and into the kitchen.”
“They didn’t even know that they were alive up there,” Marciano said, adding that the mother cat was not with them.

“They’re cold, they’re frightened, they’re hungry,” Marciano said. “So we just got them, we’re going to try to get them a little more comfortable, but oh my – they’re so cute.”
He later took to Twitter to ask for help in finding the kittens some shelter and food.
“I need to hear from any animal rescue org that’s in the storm zone,” he wrote. “[These] little buggers need food & shelter ASAP.”
