PENDER COUNTY, North Carolina (WTHR) - Fallen trees and debris are not the only things Hurricane Florence left behind.

On a stretch on Interstate 40 in Pender County, North Carolina, near Wallace, firefighters from the Penderlea Fire Department were called in to clean up a school of fish stranded on the roadway.

Crews believe the fish traveled from their natural habitat during the storm.

They were left behind after massive floodwater receded in the area.
