Researchers are prepared to uncover the truth behind the ominous sound haunting a city, Michigan Radio reports:
Researchers in Ontario will spend the coming months trying to get to the bottom of the noise and vibration known as the “Windsor Hum.” People in Windsor have complained about the low-frequency rumbling for the past two years.
“What we’re attempting to do is pinpoint the source…but also understand how it might affect quality of life for the people of this region,” said Bob Dechert, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Foreign Affairs in Ottawa.
Windsor city Councillor Drew Dilkens says he knows of one resident who recently sold his house to get away from the hum. One study has already suggested the hum might be coming from near Zug Island, which sits in the Detroit River on the U.S. side of the border.
