I brought this up last time and almost got lynched, but Laura's delivery here is so poorly judged considering it's a disaster in which tens of people have died and hundreds more are missing.
It's so tone deaf to deliver this as a standard weather forecast. I was half expecting her to say "here's your summary" at the end.
I thought her delivery was good, she delivered the information well and it was clear. I personally don't think that it was 'poorly judged', particularly because it was being delivered to a British audience who are far more removed from the disaster than an American audience may be.
I do agree that it may be slightly more sombre if it was being delivered to an American audience, on Good Morning America for instance, or even more so on a channel broadcasting specifically to California, but we probably shouldn't forget that while it is a tragic event, as it was delivered to a British audience we are slightly more removed from it. Even saying that, I do still think that Laura's delivery wouldn't have been inappropriate had she been presenting on GMA.
