Vile Vortices Map. Note that the Vortices are aligned to the same latitudes.

Vile Vortices refers to a claim that there are twelve roughly evenly distributed geographic areas that are alleged by Ivan Sanderson to have the same mysterious qualities popularly associated with the Bermuda Triangle.

The best-known of these are the Bermuda Triangle itself, the Devil's Sea near Japan and the South Atlantic Anomaly.

Paul Begg, in a series of articles for The Unexplained magazine, criticized the methodology of writers on the subject of unexplained disappearances. He checked original records of the alleged incidents. Often, he found, the ships which were claimed to have 'mysteriously disappeared' had a mundane reason for their loss (see for instance Raifuku Maru). Some were lost in storms, although the vortex writers would claim that the weather was fine at the time. In other cases, locations of losses were changed to fit the location of the vortex. Sometimes no record of the ship even existing in the first place was found.[1]
