Hurricane Harvey Gets Michael Strahan in Trouble

MICHAEL STRAHAN is finding out that HARD NEWS isn't as forgiving as his former gig with KELLY RIPA.

The "New York Post" claims ABC is upset with him, because he didn't cut his vacation short to come back to report on Hurricane Harvey last week.  Apparently they thought he would, because he's from Houston.

A "source" says, quote, "They asked him to come home but he refused, and is still floating around on a yacht in Greece somewhere.  ABC is really upset."  Michael's rep says he was never asked to come back, but that he'll be back this week to cover the city's recovery.
