Hurricane Irma sucks water away from shoreline of the Bahamas

Over the weekend more than six million people were ordered to evacuate Florida as the storm moved towards the western coast of the US.

Hurricane Irma is so strong, it is literally changing the coastline in some areas.

The freaky and somewhat eerie video is a result of the hurricane's low pressure and sheer strength, causing surrounding waters to be sucked into its core, the Washington Post reported.

The footage shows dry land as far as the eye can see as Irma passed just south of Long Island.

When will the water come back?

Fritz says the water will return to Long Island as the storm abates.

She also noted the wind was blowing away from the shoreline on Saturday which is why water has not filled the void yet. 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. Most of Irma's power is coming from a confluence of the cell's unusually low pressure and the warm water in the Atlantic - the hurricane's low pressure is sucking water away from the shore.

He said: "Care must be taken in this case because the water often returns with even greater fury".

It is expected to make landfall Sunday, hitting the Florida Keys, southwestern Florida and the Tampa Bay area. The powerful monster Hurricane Irma has borrowed this bit of water for the time being.
