The category 5 storm has already ripped through the Caribbean Islands before it reached Florida and has killed at least 24 people and left beaches bare along the coastline of the Bahamas.

According to the Washington Post, this rare phenomenon is caused by a strong hurricane and resulting low pressure, which sucks water into the core of the storm.Obviously, I didn't believe it at the beginning until I saw some footage about the hurricane. Video:
