Dolphins have been seen swimming near the coast in the high waters caused by Hurricane Florence.

The video shots taken during the tropical storm show what appear to be two dolphins swimming in the water of the storm tide.

The aquatic mammals are seen swimming against the current of the storm surge that hits the coast near Wilmington, North Carolina, yesterday.

The pair of dolphins swam near the battered coastline as the waves of the storm and strong winds roared around them.

It is not known if the dolphins reached the shore to seek refuge from the storm or if they were dragged by strong winds.

Roads were flooded, trees flew and houses were destroyed, as some parts of North Carolina have already seen floodwaters of up to 10 feet.

When Florence broke ground for the first time, yesterday the 90 mph winds hit coastal areas, but as the storm system moved through the land, it went from being a hurricane to a tropical storm.
