Mystery sounds plague British Columbia

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.

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]

from: Doubtful News "UPDATE (31-Aug-2013) This is getting major coverage on Canada TV. Checking on Twitter, the mystery mongers are out in force saying it's apocalyptic. Here are some other suggestions I found: "trumpets of Biblical proportions" electromagnetic sounds HAARP (not active) aliens Horn of Gondor (my favorite) train brakes and regarding the last one check out THIS video and don't tell me this doesn't happen." http://doubtfulnews....eak-people-out/ Sounds like a perfect match to me! That's it!! I agree. I've heard that sound so many times when I lived up north not far from the ra... [More]

So this is the thing; In Argentina a video surfaced about the same. Apparently, according to the original uploader, the sound repeated for several mornings. Now, how come there's only 1 video from 1 location? IF this phenomena is so amazing, why there are not 100 videos of the same city from different places? Why I can't find more videos about this canadian one? with the same sound from a different location? Why? Because everybody can fake a video. I bet the population in Canada with a cellphone is higher than Argentina, so I believe that if something weird like this really happened you would ... [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]
