Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know that Hurricane Florence has been battering the east coast of America.

While the preparations for the hurricane were largely successful, flooding is still a huge issue as rain continues to fall. North Carolina has been particularly badly affected, with 740,000 homes still without power.

The death toll of Hurricane Florence currently stands at 14. But there is also substantial concern for pets and animals. Rescue services have appealed for people to adopt pets until the storm is over.

A local television reporter even jumped in to help rescue a dog during a live broadcast. Julie Wilson, an anchor for ABC affiliate WTVD, was broadcasting on Friday from North Carolina when she aided in the Rottweiler's rescue from a flooded home.

The dog’s owner Tasha later told reporters that her he was injured and required help navigating the treacherous conditions. Thankfully, dog lover Wilson was on hand.

The heartwarming video has been shared thousands of times on social media.
