A Columbia, South Carolina weatherman nearly lost it when he saw the sun shining over the city for the first time in days.

WIS-TV's Tim Miller was on the air just before 8 a.m. Tuesday morning when a tower cam shot showed the flooded city bathed in sunlight.

Over the past weekend, Columbia experienced historic flooding. Fifteen people were killed across the state and many homes and roads were damaged or destroyed.

Miller walked on camera for the 7:56 a.m. forecast and said, “Well, how about that?” He tried to keep going, but walked back off screen as he began to get emotional.

“I don’t know what to say. Sunshine. That’s amazing,” Miller said from off screen.

He then walked back on camera to start his forecast, but seconds later he had to step away again as he talked about the flood warning that’s still in place.

“Come on Tim, get with it,” he said out loud as he tried to regain his composure.

WIS-TV posted the video on their Facebook page with the caption, “SC weatherman Tim Miller gets emotional when he sees the sun. Can you blame him?”

No. No, we can’t.
