DAYTONA BEACH SHORES, Fla. -Another dolphin is dead in the ocean off Volusia County's coast, about 300 yards from shore in Daytona Beach Shores.

An onshore wind or the tide will bring the bottlenose dolphin to shore.

It is the tenth dolphin to die in Volusia County since early November.

There have been more in Flagler County and hundreds along the eastern seaboard.

Officials believe the dolphins have contracted the highly contagious morbillivirus that has been seen in whales too.
