Rare Phenomenon Caused by Irma Sucks Water From Bahama Beaches [Watch]

Footage from the Bahamas shows the shoreline receding, exposing the ocean floor.

Twitter user @Kaydi_K from Long Island, Bahamas wrote “I am in disbelief right now... This is Long Island, Bahamas and the ocean water is missing!!! That's as far as they see #HurricaneIrma:”

Video shows her walking on the exposed ocean floor. Videos from others on social media indicate that the beaches will be back to normal within a day.

The centers of hurricanes have very low pressure, which explain how a hurricane as strong as Irma managed to pull water into its core, sucking it away from the beaches – according to the Washington Post.
