Default Hurricane Irma is literally pulling the ocean away from shorelines

As a meteorologist, there are things you learn in textbooks that you may
never see in person. You know they happen theoretically, but the chances
of seeing the most extraordinary weather phenomena are slim to none.

This is one of those things — a hurricane strong enough to change the
shape of an ocean.

Twitter user @Kaydi_K shared a video Saturday afternoon that quickly
went viral. I knew right away that even though it seemed impossible, it
was absolutely legit.

“I am in disbelief right now…” she wrote. “This is Long Island, Bahamas
and the ocean water is missing!!!”

Hurricane Irma’s winds are so strong, it’s pulling water away from the
shoreline. It happened in the Bahamas on Friday and Saturday, and now
it’s happening on the Gulf Coast of Florida on Sunday.

I've seen a few videos made from within the eye. The water is
gone, but when the wall of the eye hits on the other side, the water
will be back.
Even knowing the cause, and that it's temporary, it's still neat
to see. I can only imagine what it's like to experience it in person.
