Bermuda Triangle Mystery Solved? Experts Point to 'Killer Clouds'
The mysteries surrounding the Bermuda Triangle have been the center of many different speculations since the olden times, but recent reports claim that the mystery of Bermuda Triangle has been solved. How true can it be?
What are Hexagonal Clouds?
The hexagonal clouds above the region are feared because it has the capacity to create "air bombs" that have the power of 170 mph winds. This is said to be the cause of the mysterious disappearance of ships and planes that passed by the Bermuda Triangle only to get lost along the way. Most of these incidents took place within the 5000,000 km part of the North Atlantic Ocean.
The disappearances in the Bermuda Triangle were traced back as early as the 1960s, according to a report. The air bombs that can cause strong winds can also produce gargantuan waves as high as 45 feet. A meteorologist claims that these air bombs could be the cause of the mysteries in the Bermuda Triangle.
How Strong are These 'Air Bombs'?
Experts argue that winds this strong can turn a ship upside down, no matter how sturdy and massive it may be. If a ship flips over, it could crash into the bottom of the sea without any trace; thus, making it look like a mysterious disappearance.
"These types of hexagonal shapes over the ocean are in essence air bombs," Randy Cerveny, a meteorologist said in an interview with Mirror. "They are formed by what are called microbursts and they're blasts of air that come down out of the bottom of a cloud and then hit the ocean and then create waves that can sometimes be massive in size as they start to interact with each other," Cerveny added.
Further studies suggest that the hexagonal clouds that appear in the Bermuda Triangle region range from 20 to 55 miles in diameter. "You don't typically see straight edges with clouds," Dr. Steve Miller, satellite meteorologist said in a statement. "Most of the time, clouds are random in their distribution," Miller added.
Reports say that since the mysteries in the Bermuda Triangle surfaced, within the last 100 years, there had been 20 ships, 1,000 lives and four planes lost.
