The Bermuda Triangle is a geographical region, located in the Atlantic Ocean, which is marked by a large volume of accidents with ships and planes. This has climatic and natural adversities that make it difficult for pilots to cross.

The appearance of hurricanes, storms and sea currents help explain the volume of transport accidents in this area. However, the constant accidents in the Bermuda Triangle gave rise to countless legends that gained even more fame with the media exploration of the region.

The location of the Bermuda Triangle

The Bermuda Triangle is located between the island of Puerto Rico, the Bermuda archipelago and the state of Florida, in the United States.

The geographical characteristics of this triangle indicate that it is a place of high instability in atmospheric and maritime terms. This region, which is located in the central portion of the Atlantic Ocean, is the scene of the action of very unstable air masses, which even contribute to the recurrent passage of hurricanes and storms.

In addition, the Gulf Stream is also located in this area, a sea current that is associated with the appearance of tropical storms and constant fogs. In addition to the geographical aspects, the Bermuda Triangle is an important transit point for ships and planes traveling between North America, Central America and the Caribbean.

The legends that surround the Bermuda Triangle

There are a number of supernatural legends and conspiracy theories that try to explain the number of accidents in the Bermuda Triangle. In this context, it seems that there is not an exact number of plane and ship accidents in the region, but rather divergent studies on accidents and shipwrecks that occurred locally.

The accident that gave the Bermuda Triangle its greatest fame occurred in 1945. That year, five military planes that flew over the Bermuda Triangle disappeared, as did the rescue plane that was later in search of them.

This incident, which to this day has not been resolved, left 27 people missing. The remains of the aforementioned planes were never found and American investigations were not conclusive. This accident was portrayed in books and movies, thus increasing the interest of the media in this place.

Explanation for the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle

The explanations of the dangers involved in the Bermuda Triangle are closely linked to the physical and geographical aspects of this region of the globe, as mentioned above.

Some aspects that help explain the number of accidents in this region are rainfall, wind speed and the presence of strong sea currents.

There are numerous factors that can cause accidents in the Bermuda Triangle. Some of them are difficult to predict and can make navigation difficult.

The appearance of intense fogs and sea storms, climatic phenomena difficult to predict, is also a plausible argument to explain the dangers involved in the transit of means of transport in this region.

It is also worth noting the presence of oceanic cracks, sandbanks, coral reefs and other natural obstacles. Therefore, the natural and climatic conditions of the Bermuda Triangle, along with the high traffic of means of transport, the geographical isolation of the region and the difficulty of communication, are points that help to understand the risks involved in crossing this area.
