As Hurricane Irene nears the East coast, there's been talk of evacuating below-sea-level areas from Florida all the way to New England. If you've got a fear of flooding, it'll only be bolstered by this horrifying photo out of water-logged Puerto Rico.

UPDATE: The Washington Post is reporting that this shark picture was actually a fake. The discerning Reddit community spotted the same shark in a picture from Africa Geographic. So the only thing you need to worry about during Hurricane Irene is ... Hurricane Irene.
