Did Florida Just Experience a Real Sharknado?


After powerful storms ripped through Central Florida early Sunday residents are wondering if a true-to-life “Sharknado” took a bite out of an iconic local shop sign?

The iconic Beach Wave surf shop shark sign at the intersection of state roads 520 and A1A in Cocoa Beach was damaged after wind gusts managed to bite the sign clean off.

The shark statue has always been part of the sign, with its half-bitten surfboard placed in the mouth of the shark. After the damage, it appears that the shark destroyed the sign, looking like a scene from “Sharknado.”

That’s not Tara Reid you’re viewing — it’s a damaged signpost. See the full report about Cocoa Beach below:

But, wait, there’s more.

Just down the road in Palm Beach County, a woman said found a five-foot shark in her friend’s condo swimming pool.

No doubt more fallout from the recent outbreak of Sharknados.

According to the Sun-Sentinel, local resident Nicole Bonk said she saw two boys carrying the shark with hooks in its mouth before dumping it into a condo pool.

Bonk told officials she and her husband pulled the shark out of the pool and took it to the Intercoastal Waterway where they released it, but was unsure of its survival as it looked “half-dead.”
