The energy behind powerful Hurricane Irma is so massive that it sucked water into itself and away from shorelines in the Bahamas on Friday. Video footage from Long Island, Bahamas has quickly gone viral after being posted across social media when it revealed the ocean was literally missing as Hurricane Irma passed the island.
The surreal video shows an exposed dry ocean floor with no water around as far as the eye can see.
Meteorologists say the chances of seeing such an extraordinary weather phenomenon are extremely low. The Washington Post’s deputy weather editor, Angela Fritz, confirmed the video as real and explained what had happened:
“Basically, Hurricane Irma is so strong and its pressure is so low, it’s sucking water from its surroundings into the core of the storm.”
“In the center of the storm, where there is extreme low pressure, water is drawn upward. Low pressure is basically a sucking mechanism — it sucks the air into it, and when it’s really low, it can change the shape of the surface of the ocean. As the storm draws water toward the center, it gets pulled away from the surroundings.”
Meteorologist Ben Gelber explains that Irma’s low pressure also contributed to this phenomenon, and called it a “hurricane bulge.”
