  1. I just visited the USS TORSK this past weekend with my 8 year old daughter and other family members. As we were walking down the stairs to go under my daughter got very upset and had a very terrorised look on her face. She asked if we can leave. She said she couldn’t take the smell and kept looking around like she was trying to see something or look for something with a very chilling look. I have never seen her like this, this is not the way she usually acts. We did walk through pretty quickly, she seemed more calm after we left the room furtherest from the back. It was very unnerving to me the past few days and something told me to look up the USS TORSK… I came across a few websites that said it was haunted. It now makes sense to me. I’m sure my daughter felt or saw something that the rest of us didn’t.
