“I have photographed hundreds of tornados and four hurricanes. I’ve never seen winds so strong that dolphins were blown from the ocean.” said Ernie Schwartz of The Weather Channel.

According to Central PA Leek wildlife expert Earl Sneed this is not an uncommon tragedy of hurricanes. “Dolphins swim away from hurricanes. And when they get closer to shore in shallow water they can be swept away by the winds.” explained Sneed.

Residents of Fort Pierce report about a dozen wind-blown dolphin impacts on area homes.

Central PA Leek is watching the storm closely and will provide updates as they become available.
