With Cuba facing two extremely destructive hurricanes this weekend, tourists and even dolphins have been evacuated from the projected paths of the storms.

Six dolphins were removed from the island Cayo Guillermo ahead of Irma.

The workers removed the sea creatures from the water and onto mats, where they were placed in wet blankets and transported via helicopter to safety in the province of Cienfuegos, according to The Journal.

Waves of up to 36 feet (11 meters) smashed businesses along Havana's sea side drive on Sunday morning in the wake of Hurricane Irma, pummeling famous hotels such as the Copacabana, which were evacuated along with flooded neighborhoods.

They have been placed in a swimming pool offering similar conditions to their usual life at an aquarium in southern Cuba.
