In popular culture[edit]

I have removed the "In popular culture" from this article for lacking sourcing for over a year. Editors are welcome to re-add these items, bearing in mind that per WP:IPCV they must include a reliable source to establish that the reference is considered significant in some manner.

Something to add[edit]

"Another example was the ore-carrier recounted by Berlitz as lost without trace three days out of an Atlantic port when it had been lost three days out of a port with the same name in the Pacific Ocean." The name of the ship is Freia - she was a german ore-carrier, and that of the ports - Mansanillo - one of them in Cuba, the other - on the pacific coast of Mexico. - Kusche, Lawrence David (1975).

Yes, I sent an edit request about this by surface mail. Unfortunately the ship vanished before it reached Florida.--Jack Upland (talk) 09:28, 13 January 2017 (UTC)

Location: Explanation Attempts - Violent Weather

Change "Tropical cyclones are powerful storms, which form in tropical waters and have historically cost thousands of lives lost and caused billions of dollars in damage" to "Tropical cyclones are powerful storms, which form in tropical waters and have historically cost thousands of lives and caused billions of dollars in damage"

Essentially, remove the word "lost" so the sentence makes grammatical sense. GabrielHotz (talk) 11:22, 7 June 2017 (UTC)

Nonsense removed[edit]

I have removed edits to this article which said an island had began forming "in the area of the Bermuda Triangle....located off the tip of Cape Point in Buxton, North Carolina". The problem is North Carolina is not part of the Bermuda Triangle. A ref mentions the triangle, but it is from METRO, a freesheet tabloid which boasts it has "NEWS... BUT NOT AS YOU KNOW IT". Unsurprising, considering the tabloid is owned by DGM Media which is part of the Daily Mail group. A google search shows that when reporting the appearance of this sandbank, National Geographic, CNN, Fox News, etc, did not sensationalise it with a mention of the Bermuda Triangle. Moriori (talk) 23:29, 1 July 2017 (UTC)

well, several reliable news sources including Newsweek, Daily Mirror, The Independent, The Sun, CNN reported that the area is within the Triangle. That fact can't be ignored. Note: Cape Point is located near the southern tip of Hatteras Island on the coast of North Carolina and is also the nearest landmass to Bermuda, which is about 563 nautical miles (648 mi; 1,043 km) to the east-southeast.

I've removed it also. It belongs in the article Graveyard of the Atlantic which doesn't discuss the Bermuda Triangle, but with the sensationalism deleted. It hasn't suddenly appeared, aerial stratigraphy showed it developing in February. Sloppy reporting isn't an excuse for including it here. See the interview with the Superintendent of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore.[2] Doug Weller talk 06:30, 2 July 2017 (UTC)
