Bermuda Triangle: Dangerous new island appears suddenly

A new island has formed in the Bermuda Triangle, but people are being told to stay away. Nicknamed Shelly Island by locals because of the large number of shells on it, the mile-long sand bank appeared over the last couple of months.

The island is off Cape Point in North Carolina and is becoming something of an attraction.

However people are being told to stay away because of strong currents in the gap separating the sandbank from the mainland.

The distance between the two is just 50 yards, but the riptides are said to be incredibly strong. And there are sharks.

The island popped up in the waters which surround the infamous Bermuda Triangle.

The Triangle lies in a section of the North Atlantic Ocean.

It covers an area of 440,000 miles of sea.

It’s one of the most heavily travelled shipping lanes in the world, with vessels crossing through to get to ports in America, Europe and the Caribbean.

The Bermuda Triangle has also been blamed for the disappearance of dozens of planes and ships in the past 100 years.
