The Ghostly Light Inside This EMPTY Hospital Made Her Blood Run Cold.

If we're talking spooky stories, there's no better plot-opener than a mysterious light that no one can explain. Shining through a window or door, burning bright with unknown origins: Just thinking about it can give you the creeps, and it's the reason spooky mystery lights are used in plenty of horror movies.

So imagine one NOLA nurse's surprise when, just as she was getting off her shift at a hospital, she noticed a spooky light coming from the hospital across the way. This wouldn't have been weird at all -- if, of course, the hospital hadn't been abandoned for about a decade. Where could this light be coming from? Was it supernatural, or the result of some kind of message sent by a stranger.

Find out the answers to this strange little whodunit below -- the answer isn't exactly shocking, but you'll definitely be surprised to find out what's really going on here.

This is Charity Hospital in New Orleans.

It was operational until 2005, when Hurricane Katrina hit. The building flooded and was subsequently destroyed, and the city didn't have enough money to rebuild it.

The hospital was abandoned shortly thereafter.

But now, 10 years later, it's in the headlines again.
