Real ‘Sharknado’ on Carolina shore: Hundreds of sharks in feeding frenzy, so incredible it looks fake

It’s being called a “Sharknado of the Carolinas” and the YouTube video is getting a lot of attention.

Here’s the description from Brian Recker, who posted it :

On Thursday, October 8 at around noon, while at a retreat at Cape Lookout National Seashore off the Crystal Coast of North Carolina, the leaders of One Harbor Church witnessed a shark feeding frenzy. The men were out fishing for the evening’s dinner when they stumbled across more than 100 sharks attacking a school of blue fish. As seagulls and pelicans joined in on the meal, the men began to cast into the surf, catching fish without the use of bait. For more than five minutes, the sharks were observed swimming in and out of the surf, some of which became beached in the fury. Donnie Griggs, the cameraman who captured the footage, is an avid waterman who spearfishes, dives, swims and surfs at Cape Lookout often.

I wonder if I’m the only one who finds his conclusion amusing:

“We want it to be clear that Cape Lookout and the surrounding beaches of Eastern North Carolina are extremely safe for swimming,” he writes.

Um . . . what?
