Hurricane Irma has been described as one of the most powerful storms to happen in years, and the video below serves as a testament to that fact.
Irma was so strong that it sucked the water straight out of the ocean in the Bahamas, leaving the bare ocean floor dry as far as the eye could see.
This rare occurrence proves how powerful the storm is, with winds strong enough to leave the ocean dry for miles, something that has rarely been captured on film.
As this storm threatens the United States, President Trump and local officials in Florida have been warning citizens to stay safe, evacuate if necessary, and are working overtime to prepare relief efforts for what will certainly be a massive undertaking.
