Deputy Meteorological Secretary Angela Fritz said, “The incident is rare but true. This has been the result of powerful cyclone effect. The cyclone was so strong that it changed the shape of the sea. Originally Irma was very strong, but its pressure was less. As a result, Irma absorbed the water that was in the center of the cyclone.”
Bahamas Meteorological Department President Owen Nile said, “People in those areas must be very careful about where such incidents took place. Because the disappeared water can return to the horrible speed again.”
