QUESTION:

A viral photo making waves claims Hurricane Florence is lifting sharks out of the ocean making for a real-life Sharknado. Is it true?

ANSWER:

It’s phony.

SOURCES:

BreakYourOwnNews.com

PROCESS:

All week long Verify has been tracking the rumors and misinformation coming out of Hurricane Florence. A viral photo claims that Hurricane Florence is barreling down the Atlantic coast with live sharks.

Though widely-shared, we can Verify right off the bat, this one is FALSE.

The photo imitates a television breaking news graphic, similar to CNN; however, the photo was created on a site called, “BreakYourOwnNews.com,” which does exactly what it sounds like. The same fake photo circulated during last year’s Hurricane Irma.
