In my opinion it is the proximity of both Hurricanes Irma and Jose creating new phenomenon. Like two blades of a cake mixer.
The ocean around part of the Bahamas is gone. Apparently, this may be the calm before it all comes back in the form of a tsunami. Hopefully that’s not the case.

Video footage has shown how a record-breaking Atlantic storm sucked water from the Bahamas shoreline.
Hurricane Irma, a Category 5 storm which ripped through the Caribbean Islands on its way to Florida and has killed at least 24 people, left bare beaches along the coastline of the Bahamas.
“I am in disbelief right now… This is Long Island, Bahamas and the ocean water is missing!!!” tweeted @Kaydi_K. “That’s as far as they see. #HurricaneIrma.”
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.
For a few hours or days, a storm can even change the shape of an ocean.
