'The ocean is missing!' Rare phenomenon caused by Irma sucks the water from Bahamas beaches

I thought that this was a spoof ... It's not! :lol:





Quote
Extraordinary footage from the Bahamas show the shoreline receded much farther than normal, exposing what is usually the ocean floor.

Twitter user @Kaydi_K from Long Island, Bahamas wrote on Friday: '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.'

The strange video shows her walking on the exposed ocean floor which is dry and covered in large shells. Another Twitter user tweeted a photo of the exposed beach at a different beach in the Bahamas and showed it was back to normal within less than a day.

Hurricane Irma, which hit the Bahamas on Friday, is so powerful that it has altered the shape of the ocean in Long Island, but it will likely be back to normal by Sunday afternoon.

Same thing happens to the Sound at along the OBX (Outer Banks, North Carolina).

You don't want to be "just hanging out" when it suddenly returns to normal levels, there is a tendency to rush in and exceed the previous level.

I have seen small examples of that down in the ship channels when the huge oil tankers come in. They draw so much water, they pull the water several hundred feet away from the shoreline. After the ship passes, all that water comes roaring back.
