Water just disappeared from Bahama beaches before Hurricane Irma

"Basically, Hurricane Irma is so strong and its pressure is so low, it’s sucking water from its surroundings into the core of the storm.
This isn’t the sign of a tsunami. The water will return to Long Island (island in the Bahamas) and it probably won’t rush back with any great force. It will probably be back by Sunday afternoon."
- Angela Fritz, Meteorologist
This particular instance is not the sign of a tsunami. Water retreating into the ocean after a shock wave caused by an earthquake would be a sign of a tsunami.
