Smoldering ashes pour from the night sky as a monstrous wildfire approaches a helpless community. On May 1st, 2016, a fire erupted southwest of Fort McMurray in Alberta, Canada; forcing the evacuation of nearly 90,000 people. Although it destroyed 1.4 million acres of land and some 2,400 homes, nobody was directly killed from it. The Fort McMurray wildfire became the costliest disaster in Canadian history, with estimates as high as $9 billion in overall damages.
On March 11th, 2011, a mystifying 9.0 earthquake rocked Japan, subsequently triggering an enormous tsunami event. The combination of the two became the most costly natural disaster in world history, totaling over $200 billion in damages. A handful of survivors seek refuge on top of a building, and watch in horror as their city is torn down. Look closely, and you can see among the surplus of debris, entire houses being carried away by the unyielding water flows. Nearly 16,000 people perished in the event.
April 15th, 2015, a tornado outbreak ignites across the Midwest. A 700 yard wide tornado streaked across 30 miles of upstate Illinois, impacting the towns of Fairdale and Rochelle with high end EF-4 intensity. As the warnings were issued, Clem Schultz went up to a second story bedroom to retrieve lanterns, anticipating power outages. That's when he saw the enormous funnel outside his window. Thinking it was headed south, away from his neighborhood, he decided to film it with his cell phone instead of seeking shelter.
Then suddenly it began to overtake his neighbor's house. Clem, who was 80 years old at the time, couldn't react fast enough and was caught in the worst possible place to be during a tornado… a perimeter, second story bedroom right next to a window. The tornado obliterated his house. When rescuers pulled him from the wreckage, they warned him not to look down… Geri, his wife, was in the kitchen at the time. She became one of two victims of the storm. The Rochelle tornado was rated a high-end EF-4, with only small technical details preventing a higher rating. Nevertheless, it still boasted 200mph winds.
A midair collision between two airplanes occurs only seconds after the skydiver jumped. The event unfolded at an elevation of 12,000 feet over the expansive landscape of Wisconsin, back in November, 2013. Believe it or not, all nine skydivers were able to deploy and safely land, including both pilots. Although the event was dramatic, everyone involved made it out alive.
Jack Mackercher, and girlfriend Jordan Buranskas, were the subjects of one stranger's unnerving gaze. The story originates out of Chicago, earlier this year at the end of July. The couple had forgotten to lock an upstairs door, which left the household vulnerable to an intruder, who took the opportunity to steal Jordan's purse. The couple fell asleep together in the living room watching Netflix, while the hooded man leered at them from the top of the stairs for 15 minutes.
On Janurary 12th, 1998 a white Toyota sped past Deputy Kyle Wayne Dinkheller, as he was monitoring traffic outside of Dudley, Georgia. Dinkheller, then 22 years old, hadn't even made it out of his car before the offending driver, Andrew Brannan, approached him in a threatening manner.
That's when the deputy attempted to take control of the situation, but mistakenly allowed Brannan to fall back to his truck where he grabbed a loaded M1 Carbine semi-automatic rifle. The situation escalated into a shootout. Brannan, a Vietnam War veteran, was able to out gun the deputy by aiming at Dinkheller's unprotected legs and arms. Dinkheller soon became unable to fire back and screamed for his life. Brannan exclaimed "Die, Fucker!" as he mercilessly slayed the deputy with a carefully aimed shot through his right eye.
The video itself contains no graphic imagery, but it's a haunting piece of reality. Police work is one of the hardest jobs in the country, and this video is a good reminder of why. Brannan was apprehended thereafter, where it was discovered he suffered from PTSD and had a history of bipolar disorder. He was sentenced to death, and was executed January 13th, 2015. His final statement was one of understanding, remorse, and acceptance:
"I extend my condolences to the Dinkheller family, especially Kyle's parents and his wife
and his two children. […] I feel like my status was slow torture for the last 15 years. I had
to say that with them here. I have to tell the truth. I'm certainly glad to be leaving."
I've decided to include as much information about the video as possible, for those who rather not watch but are still interested in the story. I must warn you that once something is seen and heard, it cannot be unseen or unheard. Please proceed with caution to the source video. If the content is too extreme for Imgur, I will disable the link.
This video comes to us from the Warm Springs Indian Reservation, in Oregon. It was uploaded by one of my favorite channels, Parabreakdown. Screams erupt from the woods in the pitch black cover of nightfall. They persist for about 4 minutes into the video, where the videographer claims they were getting closer. The screams are eerily inhuman, but following several gunshots that rang out from the darkness, they were abruptly silenced.
In 2013, Frank, from Exploring Abandoned Mines, found himself in the presence of a demonic entity upon entering a supposedly haunted mine in Nevada. Inside he felt drastically varying ambient temperatures, and sensed that he wasn't alone. This is someone that has visited over 100 empty and abandoned mines in his lifetime but found himself struggling to venture past 100ft into the Horton Mine. In the last scene, numerous rusted chains hung from the ceiling but peculiarly one of them swung vigorously. It was at this moment he was compelled to leave.
Frank returned to the Horton Mine in 2014. This time he was prepared to go further down the tunnel. That same demonic presence still lingered from the last time, and all throughout his visit there was a varying difference in temperature. He also noticed a strange fog that seemed to thicken the further he went. Eventually, Frank reached the end, which was flooded. As he began to exit the mineshaft that's when the sounds of voices and machinery suddenly materialized: https://clyp.it/t14tycbl

William Slone uploaded this video a few years ago to his YouTube channel, which consists mostly of music and art project videos. He apparently summoned a ghostly being through an Ouija board. The ghost had revealed its name was James. Ever since then, Slone had witnessed various paranormal events in his home. In this video, he explained that the blinds would abruptly rustle by themselves from time to time. He then tasks James to move them on camera.
The Battle of Gettysburg is considered the single bloodiest conflict of the American Civil War. It took place over 150 years ago in Pennsylvania, between the Army of the Potomac and the Army of Northern Virginia. Casualties from both sides are estimated in excess of 50,000. Ever since then, stories have persisted that the battlegrounds were haunted. Today, it is considered one the most haunted places in the country.
