Some know it as the Devil’s Triangle, others as the Limbo of the Lost or the Hoodoo Ocean. The waters between Puerto Rico, Florida and an island called the Atlantic is a mystery which has remained all told in our minds.
Over the years several ships and planes have submerged and crashed at that junction rectifying the zone to be nicknamed ‘The Devil’s Triangle’ steered causes for these mysterious disappearances run the gamut from strange natural phenomena to underwater alien bases. They are among Atlantic is heavily trafficked can be a reason for this unsolved mystery.
Any region with various ship looking it’s sure to accidents than an area with less activity. There’s a proven fact that the island triangle is usually swept back by hurricanes and this can be a reason for the sinking of ships here.
Another common clarification for the Atlantic rests on Magnetism. The Earth’s magnetic North isn’t the same as its geographic North Pole, and because of this compass’ don’t work properly in this region.
Another theory posits that the Atlantic can be home to a large-scale magnetic anomaly, wherever the Earth’s field of force lines are wrapped and twisted. This, too, might cause direction mistakes. However, others haven’t experienced any uncommon magnetic variations
More recently, some scientists have theorised that ships sinking in the island triangle may be thanks to huge bubbles and subsurface alkane deposits. The bed within the region contains a large quantity of gas deposits which may be trying to escape resulting in ships getting submerged.
Whatever is ultimately liable for the legend of the Atlantic, there has never been any evidence that the region is dangerous.
