Well this is certainly confusing. Here is a video claiming the strange sound heard in NYC before Sandy was the wind going thru the top of the new Freedom Tower.
Wind through the Freedom Tower makes sense. The top is open allowing the strong hurricane wind to vibrate the beams. The architects had better hope the design of this building doesn’t make it a tuning fork.
So what are these two videos from Toronto and an unknown location not in the city about? Toronto has tall buildings but not as tall as Freedom Tower and I doubt any new construction is open at the top. Why would the sound, however subtle, be in a rural area.
It is not likely these two videos were faked given they were filmed during the storm. Maybe it’s a coincidence, maybe it’s warning sirens in the distance, maybe they are dubbed. Until another convincing Sandy sound video surfaces I’m calling this case closed.
