The Bermuda Triangle or Devils triangle is a well-known spot in the Atlantic for strange and beguiling paranormal activity. The points of the triangle are Bermuda, Puerto Rico, and Florida. Numerous ships and planes have vanished while inside the triangle, with most occurrences near the Bahamas and Florida straits. The earliest press article discussing the disappearances was in September 16th, 1950 by Edward Jones, but the world is still waiting for a definitive cause. There is evidence that demonstrates many cases were inaccurately reports or altered later implying a cover up. If you ask a navy official they would probably say it is all hype and most likely mock paranormal investigators. It is a heavily trafficked area, especially for shipping lanes, and the accidents are consistent with other regions of the Ocean. The key difference of the Bermuda Triangle and other parts of the Ocean is that no wreckage has been recovered from any vanished ships and planes.
