The Strange Occurrences of The Bermuda Triangle by: Sriya
Many people believe that the strange disappearances occurring in the Bermuda Triangle are caused by aliens, or the strange hexagonal clouds forming in that area.......What do you think?
The Bermuda Triangle is located in the Atlantic ocean and touches the points of Bermuda, Puerto Rico, and Florida. The triangle has been known to claim hundreds of ships, and around 75 planes. Some of the most famous disappearances include the USS CYCLOPS, with a crew of over 309 men and woman disappeared in 1918, and was one of the biggest losses of the U.S Navy's history. Flight 19, a group of 5 U.S torpedo bombers that vanished in 1945 on a training route. In 2015 a cargo ship, El Fargo, with over 33 people on board also vanished.
Scientists claim that the real reasons for these strange occurrences is due to the unusual hexagonal clouds that form in that area. These hexagonal clouds create 170 mph "air bombs" full of wind, which is the most suggested claims of ships & planes disappearing. There also have been reports about the waterspouts, and huge eruptions of flammable methane gas from the ocean floor, which scientists believe are the causes for ships sinking without a trace.
The hexagonal clouds reach 22-55 miles across. Waves inside these clouds can reach as high as 45 feet. These Air bombs are formed by micro bursts, and their blasts of air that come down from the bottom of a cloud which hit the ocean and create massive waves as they start to interact with each other.
Many people have their own theories, some not as practical as the rest, about what really causes the disappearances. Some claim that Atlantis is located beneath the Bermuda Triangle and the people of Atlantis haunt that place. Since the Bermuda Triangle is one of the few places on earth that points to true north, one of the theories suggest, that the pilots could get confused with the direction and plunge into the ocean. Other say that these tales of disappearances never happened and people just made up stories to entertain themselves. We know that the last claim isn't true, because the Navy wouldn't make up stories about a ship with a crew of over 309 that went missing with a huge supply of bulk cargo.
