Check Out Some Of The MOST Spine CHILLING Recordings EVER Recorded


VIA| When we think of things that scare us, we mostly think of things that we can see. It makes sense. When we can see something, we can visualize it in our mind. It takes a shape, which makes it real. What about sound though? Can sound be terrifying? I never used to think so, but after listening to some of these recordings my opinion has changed. These 11 recordings all captured something horrific or tragic. If you have sensitive constitution, you may want to think twice about listening to some of these. What you hear in these recordings will never be able to be fully pushed out of your head. Listen at your own risk.

1. A Nuclear Explosion- Many of us have seen a nuclear explosion on video before. The footage is fascinating to watch. The raw destructive power is almost beyond our comprehension, which only make it that much more enticing for us to play with. Most videos that you see of a nuclear explosion have matched up the audio with the visible explosion. This is perhaps one of the only unedited audio recordings of a nuclear explosion. The sound itself may not be the most terrifying thing, but when you realize that carnage that its source can cause it is shocking.

2. Earthquake Of The Coast Of Japan-  Earthquakes are natural disasters that can wreak devastation on any part of the planet they effect. There really is nowhere to run when one occurs. In 2011, a 9.0 magnitude earthquake hit 40 miles off the coast of Japan and 19 miles below sea level. The earthquake released the equivalent explosive yield of 470 megatons of TNT or roughly 9 Tsar bombs (the biggest nuclear weapon ever detonated). The earthquake was what was categorized as “megathrust” earthquake. Megathrust earthquakes are caused when one tectonic plate is forced underneath another. These type of earthquakes are the most powerful on Earth. Every earthquake above a 9.0 magnitude since 1900 has been a megathrust earthquake. More than 15,000 died as a result of this earthquake, and 1 million buildings sustained damage or collapsed. The Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant was also significantly damaged in the incident, cause a meltdown and untold amounts of radiation to be released. It is also the most costly natural disaster in world history with a monetary cost of roughly $235 billion. It turned out to be the 4th most powerful earthquake ever documented.

3. Alto, Indiana Tornado- Another natural disaster that causes havoc and devastation are tornadoes. Having been through a tornado myself when I was younger, I know through firsthand experience the kind of terror that comes along with going through one. That’s why this recording was a little difficult for me to listen to. On Palm Sunday in 1965, a F4 tornado touched down in Indiana and tore its way through the towns of Alto, Russiaville, Kokomo and Greentown. The storm completely wiped the town of Alto, and almost destroyed all of Russiaville. It left a 800 yard path of destruction in Kokomo. This recording was taken from a church’s radio broadcast while the tornado was tearing through the town. It ultimately claimed the lives of 25 people and injured 800. If you listen carefully, you can make out the drowned out screams of the people inside the church….


4. Joplin, Missouri Tornado- When talking about the tornadoes in the United States, it’s hard to not bring up the Joplin, Missouri tornado of 2011. I still remember the news report when it happened because it was my birthday. The F5 tornado ripped its way through Joplin, Missouri basically leveling the whole town. I remember seeing pictures of what the school looked like after, and being amazed that anyone made it out alive. It is one of the deadliest and most costly tornadoes in U.S. history.
