So how did the planes and ships disappear? What went wrong? There are many theories that try to explain the mystery of missing ships and planes in Bermuda Triangle. While some theories are close to what may have happened in reality, some are just speculations. THEORIES Methane Gas Theory: Huge amount of methane gas, trapped thousands of feet under the ocean floor at Bermuda Triangle area can cause the planes and ships to disappear in no time. Strange Weather: At times there are violent storms in the Bermuda Triangle area.
These short but intense storms can build up quickly and go away so fast that even a satellite can’t detect them properly. But these storms are strong enough to destroy ships or planes completely. Freak Waves : Very large waves can appear suddenly even in calm seas. Research has shown that freak waves up to 30m high & capable of sinking a large ship within moments, can and do happen.
Although these are very rare, in some areas ocean currents indicate that they happen more often than normal. Hurricanes: Hurricanes are extremely powerful storms that sometimes appear in the Atlantic near the equator.
Such hurricanes have historically been the cause for thousands of lives lost and billions of dollars of damage. Unusual Seafloor: The seafloor in Bermuda Triangle area is also found to be quite strange. There are some unusual formations. From a gentle slope it takes a sudden deep drop. In fact, some of the deepest trenches in the world are found in this area. Ships or planes that sink into these deep trenches will probably never be found. Supernatural Theories: There are also explanations based on some supernatural theories like the lost city of Atlantis, UFOs and Aliens.
And, there are many more explanations… New theories keep evolving, but none so far have been able to prove the phenomena of disappearances with facts and evidence. In short: The ocean has always been a mysterious place to humans, and when foul weather or poor navigation is involved, it can be a very deadly place. This is true all over the world. There is no evidence that mysterious disappearances occur with any greater frequency in the Bermuda Triangle than in any other large, well-traveled area of the ocean.
