Mysterious sounds heard in the Bermuda triangle

The National Reporter
On January 16, 2015, merchant seamen aboard a cargo vessel were nearly deafened by a very loud sound that seemed to come out of no where.

“I don’t know what the hell it was, it scared the hell out of all of us.” Seaman John Swurley told us. “We were on deck checking to make sure the rigging hadn’t slipped out of place from a storm we went through the night before when all of a sudden this sound, like a roar started up. It got louder and louder until we were all holding our ears.”
“It reminded me of a big animal roaring, like a Lion or something, but it was coming from everywhere. The sky, the sea. Everywhere all at once.” Seaman Frank Kelly explained.
The National Reporter – How long did this sound last?
“It started up and got louder and louder then it faded away. I guess it lasted about a full minute.”
“Yeah,..I would say about a minute. It was loud as all hell then it just passed by and disappeared.” John Swurley added.
The National Reporter – Could it have been another ship or an airplane?
“No. absolutely not.”Frank Kelly said. “There was nothing around, there were no other ships or planes flying by. We were all alone out there and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky, so it wasn’t thunder.”
The National Reporter – Have you reported this to your employer?
“They told us to keep our mouths shut about it and the government threatened us.” He said.
“The media acted like we were carrying Ebola when we went into their offices. They didn’t want to have anything to do with us or the story.”
The National Reporter – Well, you have The National Reporter on your side.
We here at The National Reporter are not afraid to tell the truth.
The government doesn’t scare us, we can assure of that.
“Yes, The National Reporter has always been a very reliable source of information.” Frank Kelly said.
“That’s right, unlike the sleazy tabloids who make up fantastic story’s just so they can sell advertising space to greedy corporations, The National Reporter can always be depended on for bringing the truth to the public.” John Swurley said.

The day the circus came to town

1857 photo of the mysterious circus tent


The National Reporter
In the early morning hours of August 1857, the town of New Madrid, Missouri was visited by a small unknown circus.
The people of New Madrid naturally welcomed the small circus and eagerly anticipated the show as they set up their operation on the outskirts of town.
By the end of the day the circus was open for business and the excited locals began arriving.
In no time at all the big top was filled to capacity which much to their displeasure, left a few hundred New Madridians outside waiting for the next show.
The sounds of the ring leader shouting through his megaphone, the performers, the music and all the wild animals echoed out across the big field where the circus had set up their big tent.
And then just as the show was about to end, there was silence.
The ring master, the crowds and the howling animals had all suddenly become hushed.
After a few minutes some of the towns folk walked towards the front entrance to the tent and pulled aside the enclosure to peer inside.
They were greeted by an eerie sight.
There was no one inside.
It was completely empty.
Over four hundred towns people, performers and animals had disappeared off of the face of the Earth on that warm August evening in 1857.

The site was closed down and investigated by the finest detectives of the day looking for a clue as to where all those people disappeared to, but they never found anything.
To this day scientists are still scouring the Earth with ground sounding devices looking for underground caves and secret trap doors.
So far there has been no trace of any such underground caverns that could have been used to spirit so many people away unseen by the hundreds waiting outside of the big tent.
All that remains on the location is a plaque dedicated to the missing.
The bizarre occurence is still one of the most puzzling missing persons mystery in the U.S. to this day.

Mile wide whirlpool appears off NJ coast

The National Reporter
Boaters navigating the coastal waters of New Jersey got the shock of their lives this week when a massive whirlpool began to form a mile out to sea from Seaside Heights.
“It was weird as hell.” Captain Frank Bright told The National Reporter. “We were on a routine trip passing Seaside heights about a mile out at sea when we noticed that our compass was indicating that we were turning in a large circle and heading back in the direction that we had just came. It was very strange. i’ll tell you that. I was holding the ship’s wheel perfectly straight, and we were turning around facing the opposite direction within a few minutes.
After I checked all my instruments I realised that there was nothing wrong with the ship, the ocean was turning in a large circle.”
The National Reporter – Were you being sucked into the vortex of the whirlpool?
“No,..it wasn’t strong enough at that time. It was just starting to become a whirlpool as we were going past. We did however see the surface of the ocean lower into a mile wide circular depression. That was when we decided to high tail it out of there and head back to port.”

The coast guard has issued an emergency warning for all shipping to stay out of the area.
No ships are permitted within twenty miles of the phenomenon which the coast guard has described as a ship swallowing class maelstrom.
The mouth of the vortex is estimated to be a quarter mile wide.
A whirlpool of that size can easily grab hold of the largest ships in the world today and drag them under the surface with very little effort.

Dr. Kevin Terpin of the national oceanic research center has been on the scene studying the whirlpool since it began.
He had agreed to give The National Reporter an exclusive interview.
The National Reporter – Can you tell us what caused this whirlpool and why it is so huge?
“I think I can.” He said. “First we have to examine the ocean currents in the area. We have a strong current coming up from the south that is carrying warm water. That current is colliding with cold water coming down from the north. ordinarily the cold water from the north would have no effect because there is so little of it, but due to all the rain and cold weather we have had this year there is an ample supply.”
The National Reporter – So it was caused by cold water colliding with warm water?
“Exactly. What we are witnessing is an aquatic tornado. The whirlpool has formed exactly like a tornado only with warm water colliding with cold water instead of warm air and cold air.”
The National Reporter – How long do you think it will last?
“A week or two. After that the water will become to chilly to generate the rolling effect that is causing it. It will disappear as suddenly as it appeared.

If you live in the area and would like to see the whirlpool, make sure to dress warm and bring binoculars.
Please obey the local police and by all means, stay out of the water!
Do not try to launch any small craft like kayaks of row boats.
Even though the whirlpool is a mile out at sea, it has the strength to grab your boat a mere hundred feet from shore and drag you out to it.
