02x10 - Dolphin Patrol Season 2 / Episode 10: - Dolphin Patrol

Porter Ricks: Hurricane Betsy roared through Southern Florida, leaving in her wake a tragic aftermath of destruction. The fierce winds without regard to life or property tossed boats and automobiles around as though they were matchsticks. We here in Florida are old hands in weathering storms and in a matter of hours after the winds died down, we were busy with operation cleanup and restoration. We all had our jobs to do. while I inspected storm damage, the boys helped with rescue operations. Even Flipper pitched in by doing some inspecting of his own, and before long things were back to normal... or so we thought.
