Fact Check: Does This Video Show Hurricane Shaheen On The Coast Of Oman? Here’s The Truth

A video of a hurricane over a coast is doing rounds on social media with a claim that it shows Hurricane Shaheen on the coast of Oman. The post also claims that the said video was taken from Burj Khalifa in Dubai.

The Facebook post read, “Hurricane Shaheen on the shores of Oman..Photographed from Burj Khalifa in Dubai. Amazing videography….. look at the greatness of the Creator.”

When NewsMobile fact-checked the above viral video, we found that the video is an artwork and consisted of two different components.

The foreground of this animated image was taken from a stock photograph of Miami Beach, Florida. The cloud portion of this image appears to come from a May 2016 photograph of a storm over Leoti, Kansas.

We found that digital artist Brent Shavnore first put these two images together for an artwork he shared on his Instagram page in April 2019.

Shavnore’s artwork was later animated by Instagram user TheGlitch.og.

NewsMobile had debunked the same video in 2019 when it was being shared as that of Hurricane Dorian.
