A huge shark was washed up on the streets of Queensland by the cyclone Debbie.
An Australian journalist who was reporting on the flood caused by the Cyclone, found the huge shark, dead, due to the impact of the storm.
WIN News reporter, Philip Calder, mentioned he was covering the flood damage and taking footages of the area wrecked by the cyclone when he came across the dead shark.
It was lying in a muddy puddle.

A shocked reporter said,
“He must’ve gotten caught in a torrent and confused, beached himself on the side of the road. We were pretty amazed, we were turning up to shoot a flooding road, we weren’t expecting to see wildlife as well.”
Soon, the dead shark caught the curiosity of the local people who wanted to have a glance at it. It became the talk of the town.

The circumstance under which this shark surfaced, is similar to the Syfy’s Sharknado movies – which emphasize in their stories that sharks inflict terror and fear in towns hit by a major cyclone.
But then, those aren’t dead sharks, of course!
That goes on to show the fear this incident has aroused in the minds of the locals.
