The strange grinding noise is the latest in a long series of similar sounds recorded all over the world.
Residents in Terrace, British Columbia were awoken on Thursday morning by a loud grinding/trumpet noise that rolled through the hills and across the city. Several people managed to record the din which has sparked a flurry of rumors and speculation.

"It seemed to be coming from the sky or underground, something so loud though," said witness Mandi Campbell. "And I believe it was heard in Hazelton, which is close to here, and as far as the Nass." Another resident, Kimberly Wooke, had heard the sounds before back in June and was able to record this latest incident on her camera. ( see video below )
Videos uploaded to YouTube have recorded the phenomenon across Canada and in multiple US states including Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Texas and Illinois.

Theories offered to explain the noise range from geological activity to a dumpster being dragged across the ground. In the case of this latest incident a city spokesman has also suggested that the sound is actually that of grader blade being straightened.

Getting caught up here ... Doncha just love how folks come in sounding like they know what they're talking about ... except to those who actually do know what they're talking about? To them (us, in some but not all cases), they're just more random noise that needs to be addressed. I often wonder where they get their "knowledge" and how they can be so certain of it. I am by no means an expert, but some things are pretty darn basic with even an entry level of knowledge in this field. But indeed amazing how some people really think they harbor superior knowledge compared to others, yet when disse... [More]

and here is a better video of the beetham tower hum, which was recorded february 2014, where more than average strong winds amplified the hum I'm reminded of the "Ghostly voices" at the World trade Center site, which curiously enough were only heard in certain wind conditions.

Don't know what it is but it came to light in recent years... Don't listen to this people saying it is a hoax guess they red 1 article and watched 1 video for 3 sec and they went " OH This is fake and hoaxed "... Ive taken a look on more of this videos and audio recordings, it seems this is truly mind boggling... i understand the ice expansion effect, but what in the hell is it making it in open areas or areas that haven't seen this phenomena before.. In many videos animals ( dogs, cats, birds,.. ) were present they didn't react to it with fear but they obviously heard the sound ( some animals... [More]

Funny that after I checked all the "evidence" on YT that pointed to people just copying the same sounds that came from Spielberg's War of the Worlds or train sounds and concluded that all this could be explained fairly easily, I forgot all about it. Then last December, after a heavy snowstorm, I went to shovel the driveway at about one in the morning and - wouldn't you know it - out of nowhere I hear this loud trumpet sound. Only lasted about two seconds. And I go "OMG! I didn't hear this !" And I am trying to find some rational explanation so figure that some kids were partying and pulled out... [More]
