Description: SCP-5562 is a sixteen-minute long temporal loop affecting the former Brownwood Lifecare Center.Located within Fort Smith, Arkansas. Exactly 135.6km (1h 22m) from its assigned facility, Site-473. causing four humanoid entities (designated SCP-5562-1 through SCP-5562-4) to repeat a series of actions ad infinitum. A full video log of the event is available below.

Discovery: The Foundation was originally alerted to the existence of SCP-5562 on 5/26/16 after civilians within the Brownwood Lifecare Center witnessed the sudden manifestation of SCP-5562-1 during what was assumed to be SCP-5562's second loop. Following this event, all individuals present were amnesticized and the surrounding area was quarantined.

A week later the building was purchased, shut down by the Foundation, and the current Special Containment Procedures were put into place. At the time of writing the meaning or cause of SCP-5562, if any, are yet to be discovered.
