TAMPA (FOX 13) -

Social media strikes again.

A flood of photos came in after Tropical Storm Debby pelted the Tampa Bay area with rain and wind Sunday and Monday, but there are two in particular going viral across the Internet and social media.

They show silhouettes of sharks swimming along Bayshore Boulevard, which was overcome by flood water.

And they are most certainly believed to be doctored. There have been no reports of sharks swimming in the Bayshore area.

One of the photos was originally posted on Instagram. Another of a shark silhouette was posted on MyFoxTampaBay.com's upload page.

The photos are now floating all over Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. You can share your Debby photos with us here.
