A little background first.
In spring of 2011, residents of Windsor, Ontario, Canada began hearing and feeling unexplained humming and vibrating noises. Currently the source can’t be positively located.
It’s described as an idling diesel engine that keeps people awake at night. Some people have claimed it can cause physical symptoms. The noises is said to happen mostly late at night or early morning.
Here is a great video of tormented residents.
An older interview is here. A woman describes it as rattling the picture on her wall.
An earlier government study claimed the vibrations were coming from Zug Island, an industrial area right across the US border from Windsor. See here. Zug Island is a highly secure and guarded island protected by the US government. Some Youtube videos that someone made showing a sound meter pointed toward the island have been removed. I would imaging it’s illegal to point anything at a government protected facility. In certain places in the US you can’t even take pictures of bridges.
According to this article here, The University of Windsor is now doing a government funded study using something called a pentangular array. The device will concentrate on tracing the low frequency of the hum. The study will take 10 months to complete. Since a previous study suggested Zug Island, what will be done if the array proves it to be the source. I seriously doubt anything will be done at all.
Toronto filmmaker Adam Makarenko is producing a documentary about the Windsor hum. See here.
He describes the difficulty of filming around the island. From the article:
He describes the area as a “zombie apocalypse.” He’s never set foot on the island, though. ”Homeland Security is everywhere, I mean everywhere. You have to be very careful when you’re over there. It’s heavily guarded. Why that is, I don’t know,” Makarenko said.
This video called “Windsor Hum Rattling my Windows” supposedly recorded the noise.
