Hurricane Irma: 'World's Smartest Man' Explains Why He's Not Worried​

Hurricane Irma has caused widespread damage to Caribbean countries and territories over the past week and has now made landfall in the US.

There's been 24-hour news coverage of storm-related events as they unfold, with the press quizzing worried passers-by in the evacuation zones.

Usually the response is the same - panic, fear and worry about what will happen if the storm hits - however, one FOX news reporter got a different kind of answer when he talked to a bloke that the internet is calling the 'smartest man ever'.

As you can see in the footage above, his response to the reporter's questions about safety concerns is calm and practical.

The guy replies: "I'm very relieved to discover that, as we speak, the eye of the storm is due south of us by practically 220 miles, because it's crossing the 80th meridian, which is 80 degrees west longitude."

"So I'm not so worried, because it's so far away.

He continues: "This thing is moving in a very westerly direction, and because it's several hundred miles south, the risks are less and less.

"I don't think it's gonna get much worse than what we're seeing right here."

As you might well expect, people were absolutely loving his response.

And that wasn't the only thing that tweeters picked up on.
