SHILOH, N.C. (AP) — Heavy rainfall in North Carolina has diversified the farm of one family, who found fish flopping in between their rows of soybeans.


The Charlotte Observer reports a video posted on Facebook by Pasquotank County officials shows foot-long fish swimming through the rows of soybeans. The video was filmed by Carolyn Jennings on Tuesday afternoon, and has been viewed around 65,000 times.


The state has seen record-breaking rain in July, particularly around coastal areas that measured nearly a foot of rain since July 20. More than 16 inches (41 centimeters) of rain have been recorded this month at Cape Hatteras by the National Weather Service, breaking a 1949 record.
Flooding from runoff has enabled fish to leave their native creeks and lakes. One family caught several off their back porch in Manteo.
