Hurricane Irma sucks water away from shoreline of the Bahamas

"The wind on Long Island in the Bahamas is from the southeast to the northwest on Saturday", Fritz writes.

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.

Hurricane Irma, a Category 5 storm which ripped through the Caribbean Islands on its way to Florida and has killed at least 24 people, left bare beaches along the coastline of the Bahamas.

It also sucked away ocean water from the shoreline at some beaches in the Bahamas.

This is being marked as one of the most extraordinary weather phenomena's in history.

But, the water is still expected to come back with the storm surge. Wayne Neely, a forecaster with the Bahamas Department of Meteorology, wrote in a post on Facebook that this phenomenon previously occurred during a hurricane affecting Acklins Island in the Bahamas in 1936.

While some have speculated the disappearing water could indicate an incoming tsunami, that's not the case here.

The water in Long Island receded back so far, it exposed shells, buoys and even an anchor.

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