There's a new island in the Bermuda Triangle!

That sandbar wasn't there before – it's appeared over the last few months, but people are being warned to avoid it.

POSSIBILITY 1: Aliens... from Atlantis!

Some people think that advanced-but-lost technology from the mythical sunken kingdom of Atlantis is to blame for the triangle's weirdness - possibly even alien technology!

POSSIBILITY 2: Weird weather!
