Log of Unexplained Locations

Foreword: This page is to be devoted to the documentation of low threat anomalous locations which have been discovered by the SCP Foundation over the years. Although all locations listed in this document warrant securing and cover-up measures, none of them are closely enough tied to an underlying anomalous cause or considered a high enough containment or research priority to warrant full Special Containment Procedure documentation. This list may be used as a resource should knowledge of these locations become useful or necessary in the future.

Unexplained Location UE-315520 (edit)
Location Description: An elevator affixed to the ice with a placard above the doors that bear the words, "Department of Abnormalities". The doors themselves appear to have been welded shut and the button panel has been altered to no longer function.
Date of Containment: 2019-██-██
Location: Antarctica
Security Protocol: Area cordoned off and kept under constant surveillance.


Unexplained Location UE-139584 (edit)
Location Description: A 424,074 km² area encompassing the entirety of the state of California as well as the town of ██████████, New Jersey in which calling the phone number "867-5309" will result in cardiac arrest exactly 7 days later. This anomaly is not known to have occurred at any time earlier than █████ ██th, 1997.
Date of Containment: 1997-██-██
Location: California and ██████████, New Jersey
Security Protocol: Memetic agents have been placed within local media outlets (newspapers, radio stations, billboards, etc.) which strongly dissuade anyone from activating the anomalous effects. Foundation agents placed within phone companies are currently attempting to make calling this number impossible.


Unexplained Location UE-601616 (edit)
Location Description: An unnamed island (0.44 km2) in the Baltic Sea completely devoid of animal life. Land animals introduced to the island gradually lose survival impetus and typically die of dehydration within days. On initial containment, human subjects developed a flat affect within 15 minutes of exposure and became unresponsive to stimuli within two hours. A single subject eventually recovered when removed within 16 hours, although 50% of subjects failed to recover after 4.25 hours exposure (and expired without medical life support).This effect has decreased over time and as of 2018 these thresholds are estimated to have nearly doubled since initial testing.
Date of Containment: 1944-05-08
Location: 54°57' N 15°32' E
Security Protocol: Island is to be listed on nautical charts as a NATO weapons testing facility and to be surrounded by a 2 km exclusion zone. The Global Occult Coalition shall enforce the security cordon in accordance with the Köln Agreement.
Note: Additional information concerning this location is classified 3/3457/Broken Horizon.


Unexplained Location UE-525680 (edit)
Location Description: The [REDACTED] Memorial Library's third floor at Ohio [REDACTED] University may experience anomalous time-traveling phenomena. It is rumored amongst students that the large potted vine plant located in the center of the library's third floor causes time to pass quicker for students the closer they are to the aforementioned plant. Students who have attempted to study or write papers on the third floor have lamented on having spent hours there while accomplishing only about thirty (30) minutes worth of work.
Date of Containment: ████-██-██
Location: [REDACTED] OH, USA
Security Protocol: Approval for follow-up research on the potentially anomalous properties of the third floor plant is currently pending.


Unexplained Location UE-349744 (edit)
Location Description: Pedestrian crossing on █████ Street, a high-traffic road adjacent to █████ █████ Primary School. Anomaly is observed when crossing the road at the location and looking eastward.
If a car is approaching, an indistinct humanoid figure manifests approximately 300 meters from the location. The figure runs onto the road in front of the car's headlights and reacts as if about to be run over, then disappears upon impact. Drivers do not see or react to the figure.
Anomaly generally reported in low-light conditions (early morning, twilight, rainy weather, etc.). Exact frequency of occurrence is unknown. The highest number of sightings in a day is ███ on 1999-██-██, when █████ █████ students left the school grounds en masse to investigate rumours of a 'ghost'. Resulting disruption to school activities and traffic incidents brought the location to the Foundation's attention.
Date of Containment: 2000-██-██
Location: Perth, Australia
Security Protocol: Pedestrian crossing moved ███ meters from prior location under cover story of road improvements. Students and staff given counseling, medical attention and Class-B amnestics where necessary; drivers compensated for damage. No further sightings reported.


Unexplained Location UE-811776 (edit)
Location Description: A standard sized wooden dog kennel, containing a small dog blanket inside. Within the kennel resides an incorporeal entity, that appears to be roughly a canine. It behaves in a manner similar to that of the domestic canine.
Date of Containment: 2011-08-27
Location: Houston, Texas, USA
Security Protocol: An infrared camera was installed inside of the structure to track the behavior of the entity inside. Researchers are to report to the location daily to play with it to keep it cooperative.


Unexplained Location UE-735840 (edit)
Location Description: An underground hot spring with a constant surface temperature of approximately 98° Celsius. Of note is that the spring is not connected to any underground water system, and does not extend deeper than ~12 meters. The water in the spring is anomalously replenished at a rate of 0.3 cubic meters per minute if drained below normal water level. The spring is home to multiple previously-unknown non-anomalous species of thermophilic archaea.
Date of Containment: ████-██-██
Location: ████████, CO, USA
Security Protocol: The Foundation has purchased 24 acres of land surrounding the hot spring and built a private cabin there, with the cave entrance disguised with a storage shed. The property has been fenced off from backcountry hiking and skiing, and two personnel are stationed at the cabin to perform research on the spring's native microbial life.


Unexplained Location UE-197872 (edit)
Location Description: A one-story ranch-style house. The walls of the house are integrated with a rudimentary circulatory and respiratory system; these systems maintain approximately 4000 human noses located on the walls. These noses have been observed inhaling and exhaling, and do not appear to require nutrition. DNA taken from the noses has not connected them with any person recorded in the Foundation genetic database.
Date of Containment: 2007-03-29
Location: Milton, Florida, United States
Security Protocol: The home has been purchased by a Foundation front company, and is currently inhabited by two security agents. Any unidentified persons approaching the house are to be apprehended, interviewed, and amnesticized.


Unexplained Location UE-121936 (edit)
Location Description: An indoor paintball arena on █████████ Ave. Any amount of persons who enter and set up a standard paintball are joined by 4 male military style personnel (two per team). The men will give accurate and useful tactical instruction and advice to each team in order to achieve swift victory for their respected team.
Date of Containment: 05-19-20██
Location: ███████, Pennsylvania, United States
Security Protocol: Building and property were properly purchased and closed to the public under the report that rats had infested the "party area". Suggestion to use the location as an MTF training facility is pending approval.
Note: Accepted. - Dr. Gears


Unexplained Location UE-542256 (edit)
Location Description: A "Haunted Manor" theme park ride inhabited and operated by entities that claim to be ghosts. Entities are non-hostile and only wish to scare and entertain. Entities will attempt to keep their sentience a secret voluntarily.
Date of Containment: 1967-03-12 (Public access granted 1969-08-09)
Location: Buena Vista Lake, FL, USA
Security Protocol: Due to high public knowledge of the the building's existence, but not of the anomalous property, and financial backing and investment of the █████ corporation, the building must be under constant watch, and a stock of Class B amnestics be kept on site should secrecy be lost, and cover story A-13298, "False Rumor", be spread. The site should be condemned and demolished afterward.
