Footage of a dry Bahamas shoreline hit the internet shortly after Irma swept through the Caribbean Islands.

Irma is sucking water from shorelines and pulling it into the eye of the storm as it charts a path to the Florida coast.

The wind on Long Island in the Bahamas is from the southeast to the northwest on Saturday.

Meteorologists caution people not to walk on the dry seabed as it will not be safe to be in the area when the water returns.

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.

"But in the Long Island and Exuma cases care must be taken in this case because the water often returns with even greater fury".

The eyewall is now lashing the lower Florida Keys as it prepares to continue along the western coast clipping Naples and Fort Myers before it hits Tampa.
