Welcome to the Strange: Eerie Sound That’s Freaking Out An Oregon Town


Hey strangers! Weird unexplainable sounds, yeah I’m down with that.

An eerie flute like sound is driving citizens of one Oregon town bananas, B.A.N.A.N.A.S. bananas.

Aliens, ghosts, Kenny G and leaking gas pipes have all been said as possible explanations for the high pitched, whistle like note heard at random times in Forest Grove over the past few weeks. But no one can figure out where it’s coming from, and experts are equally stumped.

Here’s what it sounds like

The noise strikes at all times of the day and night, and lasts from 10 seconds to several minutes. 

Fire, police and public works officials have investigated the noise that’s plaguing the community of 22,500, about 25 miles west of Portland, but to no avail.

Forest Grove Police Capt. Mike Herbs said if someone was making the noise on purpose, then it was a city ordinance violation. 

He added that some people thought the sound could be “an alien mother ship or a warning sign of something to come.”

Audio engineer Tobin Cooley, president of Listen Acoustics, was drafted by Reuters to assess the phenomenon and he said its high pitch and ambiguous point of origin was “unusual.”

It’s not the first time Forest Grove has been hit by such a sensation. Former residents reported hearing similar sounds echoing through the night several decades ago. However, the cause was not solved back then either.

The truth of the sound must be out there. Now it just needs to be found. It’s time to get foxy Mulder and annoying Scully on this, below is a video of more strange unexplainable sounds, STAY STRANGE!
