The Bermuda Triangle has a few names such as as the” DeadlyTriangle” or “Devil’s Triangle”, it hasbeen blamed for hundreds of shipwrecks, plane crashes, disappearances, and ship malfunctions (www.
History.com) and otherunexplained phenomena. The Bermuda Triangle goes between Miami,Florida, Bermuda and San Juan, Puerto Rico. Flight19 disappeared in 1945. Flight 19 had 5 planes that went missing, theywere last heard from at 4pm. There wasno trace of the plane. (Boys’ Life June2003). A search was conducted for 5 days and that plane went missing also.
1815 was the first disappearance of aship the USS Epervier that a crew of 134 disappeared. The second disappearance was the USS Cyclopswith a crew of 309 that set sail on March 14, 1918, the USS Cyclops was neverseen again. Hubert Helligar in October of2000 was another disappearance with no explanation.
It is believed that weathercaused Helligar to disappear.Thereis also scientific explanations of the disappearances in the BermudaTriangle. One scientific example is MethaneHydrates, Methane Hydrates is created bybuilding pressure in the water and it blows up causing a pressure mass.(http://mysite.
du.edu/~jcalvert/econ/hydrates.htm) This may explain why there is never any traces ofany vessels, planes, or humans.Anotherexplanation behind Bermuda Triangle disappearances is Weather. One iscalled “Hurricane Alley” which islocated in the Atlantic Ocean. It is believed to be like a hurricane.
Theseareas have warm sea surfaces, minimal wind, and atmospheric disturbances.In conclusion, the Bermuda Triangle is neither scientificallyexplained or a phenomenon, it is a mystery that will probably never be solved. The Bermuda Triangle has had more than 70ships andplanes and hundreds of people missing. Only time and more research willtell if it can be scientifically explained or a phenomenon.
