Dolphins stranded in New York

Some two dozen dolphins are stranded in a Long Island creek. Experts think the unusually warm weather through mid-January confused the creatures, which usually head out to deeper water in winter. This recalls some stories from last year, when bad weather stranded whales on Cape Cod, and a confused dolphin swam up the Thames River in England.

If only Kurt Russell was a dolphin, maybe he could help them, Escape from New York.

That is so Sad, that the dolphins are confuse about the weather changing and thinking that it's something else. And it's 2 dozen of them too, hopefully they are ok.
