Beginning in 2011, eerie aerial sounds began to be heard worldwide. They consisted of roars, thuds, and a sound like a great trumpet echoing across the sky. As this became a well known popular phenomenon in 2012, a flood of hoax videos appeared on the internet, most of them using previously recorded sounds dubbed onto new video clips in order to give the impression that the phenomenon is more widespread even than it is.
In 1999, residents of Kokomo, Indiana began hearing a constant low-pitched rumbling noise. They developed a range of mysterious health problems soon afterwards, including dizziness, diarrhea, extreme fatigue, joint and muscle pain, nosebleeds, and headaches. No one could figure out where it was coming from.
The Kokomo Hum isn?t the first complaint about strange low-frequency noise and related health problems. The Taos Hum in New Mexico drove residents crazy in the early 1990s?they complained about a persistent deep droning noise and accompanying headaches and illnesses.
Just as with the Taos hum, some people say it?s like a diesel engine idling, while others describe it as a deep drone or fluorescent light-like buzz?and many people don?t hear it at all.
Hundreds of people in Germany are being driven to distraction by a mysterious hum. A similar sound has been driving people crazy in the U.S.?first in Taos, New Mexico in the mid 1990s and more recently in Indiana.
Many people have been complaining of an elevated pulse rate and fatigue, caused by insomnia. ?Often at night I feel as if my bed were electrically charged. The pillow, the mattress and my whole body vibrate, and the only thing you want to do is to be able to turn off that sound,? says Carmen Mischke.
People have been complaining about the hum to the government for over 2 years. Now they have hired the physicist Henriche Menges to take a closer look at ten out of the 300 homes that have reported the phenomenon.
A mysterious humming sound, similar to the one reported in Taos, New Mexico 9 years ago, has recently turned up in Kokomo, Indiana, where dozens of people say it?s making them ill. Like the Taos hum, the Kokomo one has affected a group of people who say they are bothered by the unexplained low-frequency vibrations.
In June, the Kokomo Tribune ran a five-part series plus an editorial based on interviews with about 40 locals who say they began hearing or feeling ?a low-pitched droning? about two years ago. Steve Kozarovich, a Tribune assistant editor whose wife wrote the series, says that since publication, others have called to say they too hear a low-pitched sound.
