  • Beaches in the Bahamas were reduced to mudflats when water was sucked away
  • In a phenomenon known as negative surge, the storm absorbed seawater 
  • But just days after Hurricane Irma had passed, water has returned to beaches 

Beaches in The Bahamas are once again boasting sparkling turquoise water just days after the sea was ‘sucked away’ by Hurricane Irma.

A few days ago, a Bahamas resident revealed how his local beach on the tropical island group had lost all of its seawater.

His shocking video footage showed a muddy flat expanse where tranquil waters once were.

Because Hurricane Irma was so strong an incredibly rare weather phenomenon, known as a negative surge, caused it to suck water from its surroundings into the core of the storm.

You and I live in a totally different world than the ultra-rich and the international banking elite do.  Many of them live in a world where they simply do not pay income taxes.  Today, it is estimated that a third of all the wealth in the world is held in offshore banks.  So why is so much of the wealth of the globe located in places such as Monaco, the Cayman Islands, Bermuda, the Bahamas, and the Isle of Man?  It isn’t because those are fun places to visit.  It is to avoid taxes.  The super wealthy and the international banking elite think that it is really funny that our paychecks are constantly being drained by federal taxes, state taxes and Social Security taxes while they literally pay nothing at all.  These incredibly rich elitists make a ton of money doing business in wealthy western nations and then they transfer virtually all of their profits offshore where they don’t have to contribute any of it in taxes.  It works out really great for them, but it sucks for the rest of us.

It is estimated that approximately $1.4 trillion is held in offshore banks in the Cayman Islands alone. According to an article in Forbes magazine, there is a total of approximately 15 trillion to 20 trillion dollars in offshore bank accounts, brokerage accounts and hedge fund portfolios.
