Hurricane Irma sucks water away from shorelines

THIS was the weird moment the devastating Hurricane Irma sucked water away from Caribbean beaches in a rare phenomenon.

"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", meteorologist Angela Fritz wrote in The Washington Post.

The person who posted the video later added an update to her original post that "Long Island has the all clear".

Hurricane Irma is creating such a stir that it is pulling water from the shorelines of some of the areas caught in the hurricane's crosshairs.

Footage from the Irma-hit Bahamas freaked out social media users on Saturday as it emerged that seawater was missing from a bay as far as the eye could see.

The paper said that the programme, which was internally dubbed "Hell", was discontinued previous year . However, Forbes reports the judge left the door open for plaintiffs to amend and refile their lawsuit.

"I am in disbelief right now..." In the center of the storm, pressure is very low which draws water upward into itself.

As the wind blew from southeast to northwest on Saturday, the water would be blown away from the shoreline on the northwest side of Long Island.

The hurricane has since been downgraded to a Category 3, but the National Hurricane Centre predicted it would strengthen again as it moved towards the US.

Although the Tsunami Information Center warns receding waters are typically a precursor to a tsunami, the Post reports that is not the case in this instance. The all clear for the Central and Southeastern Bahamas was issued earlier today. It will probably be back by Sunday afternoon.
