On Wednesday, Hurricane Ian, one of the worst hurricanes ever recorded in the US, pounded the Florida coast. Dramatic television images from Naples, a coastal city, depicted flooding rushing into beachside homes, engulfing roadways, and sweeping away vehicles. Now, a video of a shark swimming in floodwaters on a Fort Myers street has appeared online.

A 10-second video released on Twitter by Armando Salguero shows a fish swimming in the water. “Sharks swimming through the streets of Fort Myers,” he captioned the video.

In a statement, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) said, “You may be more likely to see alligators, snakes, and bears, so remember to stay alert and give them space.”
