A viral hoax of a Photoshopped shark swimming in a flooded Houston highway hit by the devastating Hurricane Harvey made waves Monday afternoon, when countless Twitter users and folks scrolling through their Instagram feeds were shocked by the force of Mother Nature. By Monday night, the internet had dispelled the myth that a live shark was floating among driving cars escaping the storm, even discovering that the hoax was the same one used in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. But that development went unnoticed by the good people at Fox News.

Jesse Watters, co-host of The Five and a regular Fox News personality, was convinced there were "some really weird biblical things" happening after the Category 4 hurricane made landfall in Texas Friday night, before tapering off to a tropical storm and leaving floods and destruction in its path. That included the fake swimming shark, among other unconfirmed reports spreading across the web

I've seen some amazing things out there, just watching television," Watters said. "Alligators on people's backdoor steps. I saw a shark on a highway swimming in the water."

"Like Sharknado!" co-host Kimberly Guilfoyle exclaimed, referring to the apocalyptic comedy-horror film in which sharks swim through flooded city streets. "Like Sharknado," Watters echoed.

"I saw a hawk sitting in someone's taxi cab," he continued. "You know, there's some really weird biblical things that are going on down there in Houston. I can't imagine how I would be experiencing that as a guy from the northeast, but I think Texas has it figured out."

I heard this live while walking past the Tv. I didnt even look but thought "no way" about the shark and big deal about the hawk. I better quit leaving Fox News on.
