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

Irma's Caribbean destruction continues: Category 5 storm batters Cuba and the Bahamas with 160 mph winds after demolishing entire islands and killing at least 24 people

Before: Hurricane Irma temporarily changed the shape of the ocean after hitting the Bahamas on Friday 

  • Hurricane Irma is so strong that it is sucked water into itself and away from shorelines in the Bahamas
  • Video footage from Long Island, Bahamas shows a dry ocean floor after Hurricane Irma hit on Friday 
  • A meteorologist explained low pressure in the center of the storm caused the water to be drawn upwards into itself and away from the beach 
  • The water will not rush back like a tsunami and the shore will likely be back to normal Sunday afternoon 

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.

After: Twitter user @deejayeasya tweeted this photo on Saturday saying the shoreline where he lives in the Bahamas is back to normal 13 hours later 

Shocking video shows dried up beach in the Bahamas

Pressure in a hurricane's center is low and Irma is so strong that it is pulling water into its core, sucking it away from the ocean, according to the Washington Post

Deputy weather editor and meteorologist Angela Fritz explained that this may be the result of what she calls a hurricane 'bulge'. In the center of the storm, pressure is very low which draws water upward into itself.

She also noted the wind was blowing away from the shoreline on Saturday which is why water has not filled the void yet.

Some Twitter users were concerned since receding shoreline that exposes the ocean floor is often a sign a tsunami is approaching. However, Fritz said the water will not rush back rapidly.

The International Tsunami Information Center notes on its website, when the sea drains away to not investigate because this is a typical sign of an incoming tsunami.

Irma's might: New photos of the Caribbean reveal scale of destruction caused by monster hurricane now gunning for Florida

Hurricane Irma sets her eyes on Cuba and the Bahamas

  • Cuba and the Bahamas are currently being ravaged by Irma, which has returned to Category 5 intensity after temporarily being downgraded to a Category 4 storm
  • Currently Caibarien and other parts of the northern Coast of Cuba are without power because of the storm 
  • Images from St Martin, St Barth's, Barbuda, Turks and Caicos show mounds of debris and destroyed buildings on street after street
  • Irma has left in its wake a string of torn apart Caribbean resort islands strewn with wood, metal and concrete
  • The storm is expected to hit Florida sometime this weekend and will most likely still be Category 5
  • Overall death toll stood at 24 on Friday evening and was expected to rise as rescuers reached some of the hardest-hit areas
  • The storm is expected to hit the Florida Keys on Sunday morning and southwest Florida Sunday afternoon 

Cuba is currently bearing the brunt of Hurricane Irma - and first reports show that the island's north central coast resembles the horrors of other Caribbean islands impacted by the storm.

Irma barreled in for a direct hit at Ciego de Avila province around midnight and left Caibairen and most other areas in that region without power. 

Choppy seas, grey skies, sheets of rain, bending palm trees, huge waves crashing over sea walls and downed power lines filled the state run television's evening newscast on Friday night. 

Experts have warned that Saturday morning is sure to provide scenes of much greater devastation as Irma works its way along the northern coast westward through Sancti Spiritus and Villa Clara provinces. 

On Friday Irma momentarily slowed  to category four before returning to its prior category five intensity as it scraped over Cuba's north coast. 

It is expected to stay in the area into Saturday before making its way into the central Bahamas.

Irma has so far left in its wake a ravaged string of Caribbean resort islands strewn with splintered umber, corrugated metal and broken concrete.  

Wind speeds are currently at 160 mph and are not expected to slow throughout the night.  

So far there are at least 24 people dead as a result of the storm, including nine in unspecified French territories, one in Barbuda, one in Anguilla, two in St Maarten, four in the British Virgin Islands, four in the US Virgin Islands, and three and Puerto Rico. The victim in Barbuda has been identified as two-year-old Carl Junior Francis. 

Irma is expected to strengthen into a category five storm again before slamming into the Florida Keys later this weekend. 

As it advances towards south Florida, the state has so far asked 5.6 million people to evacuate - more than a quarter of the state's population.  The storm is currently expected to hit the Florida Keys on Sunday morning and southwest Florida later that afternoon. 

'This is a storm that will kill you if you don't get out of the way,' said National Hurricane Center meteorologist and spokesman Dennis Feltgen. 

The National Weather Service also tweeted out a warning to anyone still in the Florida Keys, saying 'Nowhere will be safe.'

Strong Hurricane Irma winds bash Cuba

According to CNN, the Bahamas should be spared the worst of the storm, though the hurricane has yet to take full force in the region.

'We are waiting for the worst of it,' Cyril Vanier, CNN reporter said. 

'The forecasts here have been proved slightly wrong - but in a good way. We're talking tropic storm-force winds. We're not expecting here int he capital Nassau anything that would threaten the structure of buildings.'

The area could still very likely flood, but it is so far looking like they are going to be spared the worst bits of the bad weather. People there are currently heading to the highest and safest houses or to one of 24 shelters. 

Startling images from the past several days show the devastation the deadly storm has left in its wake on more than a half-dozen Caribbean islands.

The hurricane took a particularly heavy toll on the French-Dutch island of St Martin, where homes, stores, ports, airports, gas stations and power stations were left in shambles after Irma made landfall there as a Category 5 hurricane on Wednesday, packing winds of up to 185mph.

Gnarled black branches of leafless trees, street after street now littered with piles of corrugated tin, plywood, wrought iron, battered cars and unidentifiable objects that were once parts of someone's life.

The Dutch government on Friday raised its estimate of casualties caused on the Dutch part of the island to two dead, one of natural causes, and 43 wounded. 

Of those wounded, 11 are in critical condition, Interior Minister Ronald Plasterk said at a press conference. 

Two hundred Dutch soldiers are assisting on the island from two nearby ships as it struggles to restore its airport and main harbor in order so that it can receive more aid. 

French Interior Minister Gerard Collomb said on Friday nine people were killed, at least seven were missing, and 112 others were injured in St Barthelemy and the French part of St Martin.

The overall death toll stands at 24 Friday evening, and is only expected to rise as rescuers reach some of the hardest-hit areas.

The hurricane smashed homes, schools, stores, roads and boats on Wednesday and Thursday as it rolled over islands long known as turquoise-water playgrounds of the rich.

It knocked out power, water and telephone service, trapped thousands of tourists and stripped the lush green trees of leaves, leaving an eerie, blasted-looking landscape. Authorities reported looting and gunfire in St Martin, and a curfew was imposed in the US Virgin Islands.

Man Is KILLED In Hurricane IRMA {VIDEO} While Trying To SAVE HIS PROPERTY
This was the bizarre scene along the coast of Saint Martin after roofs were torn off houses and blown off in to the streets

  • 'Monster' Hurricane Irma started hammering Puerto Rico with 185mph winds and heavy rain late last night
  • The category 5 storm reduced Caribbean islands of Barbuda and St Martin to rubble with deadly destruction
  • Roughly 95%  of homes and properties were destroyed on both islands with Barbuda now 'barely habitable'
  • At least eight people died on the French part of St Martin, while a two-year-old child was killed in Barbuda
  • Some 900,000 people are without power on Puerto Rico and at least 50,000 people are without water
  • Irma was following projected path that would see it hit Dominican Republic, Turks and Caicos and Haiti today
  • The hurricane is expected to continue past eastern Cuba before veering north for Florida at the weekend
  • Red Cross said it is preparing for 'a major humanitarian response' as UN estimated 49million will be affected
  • Mandatory evacuations were ordered in the Florida Keys and parts of Miami as the scale of the storm emerged

The Bahamas, Dominican Republic and Turks and Caicos are bracing for impact today as Hurricane Irma powers on after laying waste to the Caribbean and killing ten islands on her deadly path to the US.

The category 5 storm - the strongest hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic - howled past Puerto Rico with 185mph winds after reducing the tiny tropical islands of Barbuda and St Martin to rubble.

They suffered the storm's full fury with 95 per cent of properties destroyed on both islands. Officials said at least eight people died on the French part of St Martin - a pristine resort known for its vibrant nightlife.

Barbuda suffered 'absolute devastation' and is 'barely habitable' with more than 90 per cent of dwellings completely destroyed, a child killed and 60 per cent of the population left homeless.

Meanwhile, residents on the British Overseas Territory of Anguilla said the island was 'utterly devastated' and looked as though it had 'suffered nuclear bomb devastation' while shocking videos have emerged showing the scale of the devastation in the British Virgin Islands.

The hurricane was expected to scrape the northern coast of the Dominican Republic and Haiti today and track near Turks and Caicos and southeastern Bahamas later. It is likely to be downgraded to a Category 4 storm by the time it makes landfall in Florida, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said on Thursday.

This morning, the United Nations said up to 49 million people are in the hurricane's path as aid agencies prepare for a 'major humanitarian response'. France, the Netherlands and Britain have sent water, emergency rations and rescue teams to their stricken territories.

I appreciate the feedback and took heed, this should look much better now, https://www.facebook.com/FoundationLITE/. I'm still skeptical with Facebook because I've heard about them taking down pages for silly things especially when it comes to black folks. Anyway, this is a legit 501c3 and years in the making. It's unfortunate about what happened with wyclef, I remembered that but not all charities are the same.  He banked on his name and was able to gain trust that way. A lot of these celebs seem like they have money but are in debt.  I feel strongly about this and determined to make a difference.  This is from the ground up so no celebrity name here, just a few people who want to make change.  If you can like, subscribe, and follow the FB page, that would be great.

I believe Haiti is going to the same torment that Africa went through and still going through, too much sins and cursed on that land there is no presence of God no positive energry which is why it is always shaking, look at Somalia same thing, people do no read the bible and many who do dont understand many things in the Bible were prediction of the future, which means God gave us the future its up to us to fix it or understand, God said he will not flood the world with water ever again and nor will he bring fire on earth, but also said that mother nature will take its course so what exactly is happening now, look at where they are happening, look at the places of negative energy, some places on earth will have to be wipe out in order to be fixed too many hate, its sad but you will soon see more and more country will go dry like Somalia, what is going on there on the things you read in the bible. mothers are holding their children waiting for them to die, due to hunger and sickness, others are being killed for water, now take a look at haiti it is always one beating after the next, now look at America the places that always burning by fire, and flood by water, look at their history and you connect the dots

Caribmama I do hope you go to visit your Grandfathers home ASAP.

And I actually contributed to his foundation. Those poor Haitians. Everybody takes advantage of them. I think those folks need to band together like Cuba and take back their country and get the corrupt out, turn that dry land into something plush by planting trees and such, etc. My Grandfather was Haitian and I hope to visit one day.

mr1stoke.....*thumbs up* Al Sharpton - Media Whore! Don Lemonhead - yes I do agree, can't stand him. Mr. Vinnie Pat, how come no Facebook page. It's great that you have a website, but blackfolks want to make sure that they ain't being played for a fool. So folks are hesitant to you just whip out the credit card and hit send. I love that their is a organization that focuses on the blacks in need in the world. Keep doing what you do.

Comment by mr1stroke on September 10, 2017 at 3:29pm

stay focus, wait for it. look at Somalia from 85 to late 90s, green and rich, now its dry and brown, the surface of the hurricane is coming from, if you read your Bible and understand reality do the comparison to history 100 millions of Africans were let to die even though they cried out to God, ask your self why, and where those Hurricane are starting, if you the ocean is missing right now, wait a little bit more and you will see, here in America look at the areas that are always hit by hurricane and wild fire, now connect them to slavery and you shall understand, America have not paid its price to humanity and to God but wait and watch the Cities that are yet to be destroyed, you have no idea and too ignorant to see whats coming, people in NY and other big cities are so comfortable, if there is an evacuation in NY today where will they go and how will they get out, how quick would the rockaways and the hudson river flood NY? well right now i am just talking trash but may be one day you can answer these questions or remember me, but for now i had good reason to move out of NY did my studies and pick a certain states to live, God made a promise that he would not flood the earth no more, and will now burn its fire on earth, but also said mother nature will take its course, so focus people, be real focus

I've been reading the thread and in agreement that we should be looking out for our own. I've posted a non profit site several times, told friends and family and I realize I have to take other measures than to ask negros to support an organization that will help them.  The organization helps poorer neighborhoods in the US and target Jamaica, Haiti and couple of other carib islands but n****'s would rather donate to macy's, Michael kohrs, some of these crooked churches, etc instead.  I'll post again, support if you want to but I get tired of folks complaining about no solution and when you provide one, THERE IS NO SUPPORT.  Visit, www.litefoundation.org, it will take us to make it grow.

I agree, to pray for folks affected by these hurricanes and do what you can to assist. I've donated money and was asking for a local organization as I refuse to partner with the red cross.
