Hums & Booms Heard Around the World

The Worldwide Hum

Jan 20, 2016

"This eerie video captures the mysterious humming sound which has baffled a city for decades. For nearly 40 years frustrated people have complained of being kept awake at night by an 'unbearable' low-pitched humming sound. Reports of the so-called Bristol Hum have resurfaced every few years since the 1970s but no-one has been able to explain what causes it. A variety of different theories have emerged which all have common factors - although strangely, not everyone can hear it. The humming is only audible indoors, it is a low, rumbling noise which is louder at night and is more common in more rural areas." from video introduction

THE HUM: The Windsor Hum (Part 1)

Video from Nightdocs

"Detroit Michigan and Windsor Ontario. Two towns that couldn’t stand as more polar opposite of each other. For the citizens of Windsor Ontario, the Windsor Hum has become a daily part of life. But what is THE HUM? Today on NightDocs we’ll dive in to one of the most fascinating unsolved mysteries. An entire secret island in Detroit, sometimes known as “Detroit’s Area 51”, guarded by the US Department of Homeland Security that’s generating an unexplainable noise that ONLY those in Canada can hear." from video introduction

What's Going on With Detroit's Mysterious Zug Island?

"As conspiracy theories go, the Windsor Hum might not have the legs of, say, the gunman on the grassy knoll. But, like any good theory, it is a persistent little bugger.

You may know the backstory here: A disturbing noise, somewhere between a window-rattling bass and a brain-numbing deep thrum, is bugging the heck out of residents in the city of Windsor, Ontario, Canada, just across the Detroit River from Detroit.

After an investigation in 2013, scientists from the University of Windsor pinpointed the source of all that racket.

Zug Island.

If that's not a creepy name seemingly drawn up for just such a mini-mystery, nothing is.

Zug Island is a highly guarded, smoke- and steam-belching, fire-spewing wasteland that sits downriver from Detroit. It looks, by most accounts and by the photos online, exactly what you'd think a steel mill on the River Styx would look like. It's Hades, USA, run by U.S. Steel.

"It's pretty well known that the island is an environmental hazard and has been for decades," says Gregory A. Fournier, an author who grew up in Ypsilanti, Michigan, 30 miles (48 kilometers) west of Zug Island. "But the area is cleaned up some, and some of the industries that dealt with chemicals and so on have been shut down and taken out of there. So there's not quite as much overt pollution as there used to be.".. from the article: What's Going on With Detroit's Mysterious Zug Island?

The Hum, a Worldwide Mystery Sound Explained

"The Hum is a mysterious low pitch noise that bothers up to 2% of people worldwide. It’s been annoying residents in San Francisco's Sunset District, where recently there’s been an outbreak of reports. In this story, we demystifies this strange global phenomenon.

Dale’s House Vibrates

Last year I did a story about the bridge that was called “Tracking Down a Mysterious Hum in San Francisco.” It was that story which inspired Dale Tutaj to reach out to me about his own mysterious hum. Dale lives in the Sunset District. Over the phone, he tells me that this is the third house he’s lived in in the neighborhood that hums and vibrates. It’s annoying, he says, and keeps him and his young daughters from getting sleep.

I go to visit Dale, and he takes me down into his garage to show me “the hum.” Huddled in the corner, we watch graphs form on his laptop screen, measurements he’s taken of the tremors in his home. The graphs are being generated by a ‘data logger,’ an expensive vibration measuring device. Dale’s an engineer by trade (he works in energy efficiency), so this kind of technical stuff comes naturally. He takes the graphs the data logger generates, analyzes them, and puts them on a website he made to raise awareness and find support. The data logger is attached to one of his water pipes, where he suspects the hum is coming from, but he’s not sure.. Anything from industrial facilities, manufacturing plants, industrial machinery, ventilation plan, as well as you've got all kinds of ducts and exhaust pipes and motors, and things that are happening all the time everywhere, making all kinds of noise at all different types of frequencies. Traffic noise— even like you've experienced [in San Francisco] with the bridge itself,” Alex says. “Essentially, if you’re within the built environment, especially in cities, you’re bathed in noise 24 hours a day. It never goes away.”" from the article: The Hum, a worldwide mystery sound explained

This article indicates that acoustic experts believe the hum is the result of the world being so built up with technology and industry that the hum spreads around the world, perhaps more localized in some cases. Is this a viable explanation? Yes but is it a firm explanation, No! What do you think? - Andy
