When NewsMobile fact-checled the above viral video, we found that this is not video of Hurricane Dorian. This video is actually a composite of at least two different images.

The foreground of this animated image was taken from a stock photograph of Miami Beach, Florida. The cloud portion of this image appears to come from a May 2016 photograph of large supercell storm over Leoti, Kansas.

Digital artist Brent Shavnore first put these two images together for an artwork he shared to his Instagram page in April 2019.
