A large mysterious object has appeared on the US beach and some people are suspecting it to be 80-foot-old treasure
An unidentified object measuring up to 80 feet long has unearthed itself in the sands of Daytona Beach in Florida.
Some believe these are the remains of an ancient shipwreck, while others claim it must be the result of NASCAR races that took place at the time.
Hurricanes Ian and Nicole caused massive erosion on the Florida beach, resulting in the exposure of this giant mysterious object.
“This erosion is unprecedented at this time. We haven’t seen this type of erosion in a very long time,” Volusia County Beach Safety Tamra Malphurs told WKMG Orlando.
“I’ve been at the beach for probably 25 years and this is the first time I’ve seen it exposed.”
She said, “It’s a mystery,” too The New York Times. “‘A lot of people think it’s some kind of old ship. Every now and then something pops up and you can usually tell what it is. You just can’t confirm this one.”
In addition to the large wooden structure, Malphur believes metal could also be a part of its manufacture.
Locals took to the internet to give their two cents on what they think will best reveal the object.
One said: “Too straight and narrow for a boat [in my opinion]. I think it’s an old dock or boardwalk,” they commented under a Click Orlando article.
Meanwhile, a Facebooker said: “I saw that a few days ago. It’s probably an old ship that was shipwrecked. Very interesting.”
As early as late 2020, Tropical Storm Eta cleared away enough sand in St. Augustine, Florida to uncover an 18th-century shipwreck Daily mail.
The following summer, high school student Nick Amelio discovered a 1715 Fleet gold coin south of Turtle Trail Beach.
“I thought my crew was pranking me because it was so crazy, but it turned out to be legit,” he told TCPalm.com.
