Amanda Huling captured the viral video where you can see the dolphin swimming in floodwaters. Huling told CNN her family was cycling back to her neighborhood in Slidell after checking out storm damage.

At the beginning of the video clip, you can clearly see its dorsal fin break the surface of the water and then again several seconds later.

You can see the floodwater is just off what appears to be an apartment complex.
