Stranded Dog Rescued From Hurricane Florence's Rising Floodwaters

Sweet video has captured the moment a dog was rescued from the floodwaters of Hurricane Florence

PETA said the pup was left behind at a North Carolina home. The animal rights organization found him scared and alone on a porch, with no way to escape the rising water.

Fortunately, a PETA rescue team was able to help the dog and bring him to safety. 

He wasn't the only canine that had to be rescued from the devastating storm

Julie Wilson was busy reporting on the hurricane for WTVD-TV when she noticed a woman struggling with an injured dog in the rising floodwaters in New Bern, North Carolina.

Wilson stopped reporting to help the woman with the Rottweiler, even carrying the tired dog through the water.

Elsewhere, journalist Marcus DiPaola and volunteer Ryan Nichols of Longview, Texas, waded through rapidly rising waters to free six dogs from an outdoor cage Sunday in Leland, North Carolina. 

“We got them out, but by the time we left, the water was so high that they would have drowned,” DiPaola said of the incident. 

Nearly 40 people have died as a result of the storm.
