Video taken from the Bahamas show how much the shoreline has receded in the wake of Hurricane Irma.

Several videos have been taken showing people able to walk on the exposed ocean floor.

Thankfully within days the water came back and deputy weather editor and meteorologist Angela Fritz says is the result of what she calls a hurricane "bulge".

In the center of a big storm, pressure is so low which causes water to be drawn upward into itself.
