REAL SHARKNADO: Hurricane Leaves Shark in Alabama Woman’s Yard

It looks like the premise behind Sharknado may not be so outlandish after all. Whitney Constantine of Mobile, Alabama was more than a little surprised after discovering a dead shark in the middle of her front yard earlier this week. According to Constantine and her husband, the shark arrived after heavy rain and flooding caused by remnants of Hurricane Patricia, leaving the area covered in knee-deep water.

As the strongest hurricane to ever hit the Western Hemisphere caused widespread flooding in Mexico, Central America, and southern Texas. Due to its severity however, states as far away as Michigan were impacted as well, with cold howling winds that continued into late this week. Effects of the hurricane were more visible in southern states, where severe thunderstorms and torrential downpours have caused flooding from Louisiana to Florida.
