Hurricane Irma is so powerful, it sucked the ocean away from beaches in the Bahamas on Friday.
Twitter user @Piznack, one of multiple people to share videos of the strange scene, tweeted: “Y’all my family in the Bahamas said Irma sucked up all the water. There’s literally no water. The beach and ocean are gone.”
He tweeted a follow-up video that showed how the water had retreated at a beach in Long Island, Bahamas.
Angela Fritz, The Washington Post’s deputy weather editor, confirmed this phenomenon is real and may occur during extremely powerful hurricanes such as Irma. The storm is so powerful, it can essentially change the shape of the ocean, Fritz said.
