Not to mention the massive loss of ships and life it would cause........

Unfortunately Pravda has cried wolf so many times it's hard to believe them about anything anymore. If it's true - it's sensational but I have my doubts. Mostly because a) It's Pravda b) They say US scientists discovered them, then explain it all from the point of view of a Brazilian???

According to Brazilian scientist Guilherme Castellane, the two funnels are approximately 400 kilometers in diameter. Until now, these were not known on Earth. The funnels reportedly exert a strong influence on climate changes that have been registered during the recent years.
Good find, how did you find that image?

Here's the whole picture of the whirlpool. As you can see the one used in the original article cropped out some important information to give size and scale. I call bunk.
Now that you mention it, it does link back to pravda and that is an unreliable source. Combined with the unreliable information and the old picture, we can't rule out that the story is completely fabricated.

after hours of looking around, I cannot find one single shred of fact in this document. None of the people mentioned can be found, i can't find any info on the study, nor can I find another source that doesn't eventually link back to the pravda article. hmmm...

In Suriname we dont have earthquakes, tropical storms or tornados, so we're a blessed country when you look at from a nature point of view. But now we have a whrilpool on our coast? Oh my, should I be worried? My country has a width of app 400 km!!
