In a video posted to Facebook on Saturday, a person is seen jumping off a pier onto what used to be the sandy bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. "And they don't know where it went!" Wayne Neely, a forecaster with the Bahamas' Department of Meteorology, warned that people should stay clear of the areas where water has receded because the ocean will come back at higher levels and with great ferocity.

One Twitter user shared an incredible video of the dry ocean on Saturday afternoon.

Washington Post's deputy weather editor and astmospheric scientist Angela Fritz said that "Hurricane Irma is so strong and its pressure is so low, it's sucking water from its surroundings into the core of the storm".

"I am in disbelief right now..."

Hurricane Irma passed through the Bahamas on Friday and struck other Carribean islands late last week.

The water is due to return to Long Island on Sunday, she added.

Two fatalities have been confirmed, and the National Hurricane Centre has been warning residents of the potential for massive storm surge taking over the streets.

Nassau, Bahamas: The Bahamas had a close call but ultimately escaped the worst of Hurricane Irma's destructive wrath, with no casualties or major infrastructure damages yet reported Friday.

The force of the mega-storm was so strong it was literally dragging water away from the shoreline in the Bahamas. Irma's central pressure is so low it acts to pull water toward the center of the storm. The Category 4 storm made landfall Sunday morning in Florida, where it is expected to move up the western coast of the state.
