This is him in 2011 during Irene.

In 2012, he was in New Jersey for Hurricane Sandy.

And he was there in 2016 for Hurricane Matthew.

He's a dedicated storm chaser, and now he's made his way to Florida just in time for Hurricane Irma.

Hurricane Shark's image is taken from a 2005 issue of Africa Geographic. From there, someone put him in a photo of a flooded highway, and Hurricane Shark was born.

Hurricane Shark is so committed to making an appearance during hurricanes, some think he deserves a paycheck.

In fact, it's possible he actually rode the hurricane to Florida.

The above image is not real. It was created using the website, according to the easy-to-miss watermark in the top right.

One guy claims Hurricane Shark outswam Olympic medalist Michael Phelps.

At least one person reported that the shark was getting up close and personal with travelers.

This shark bro really hates cyclists, according to this totally real dash cam video.

@jessebwatters hope you are reporting about the shark in the water in Miami.

And to complete the gang, a bodybuilder shark was spotted outside Naples.

We can only guess what drives Hurricane Shark to travel such long distances.

But what we can do is wish luck to our omnipresent friend. Godspeed, little guy. Godspeed.
