Strange Hum infuriates Canada, tells US to do something about it

An article appeared in the Wall Street Journal today about the strange hum annoying Windsor Ontario. The article notes that the strange hum coming from Windsor is driving nearby Canada crazy. Americans apparently cannot hear it. It has been described as a very sharp, consistent rumble sound. The Canadians want something done, and it is causing a diplomatic fracas. What is noteworthy is not only the fact that the noise exists, and not only that the noise is loud enough to interfere with normal life...but that the article about it appears in America's most conservative paper. AND that the diplomats are fussing over it. Pretty remarkable.

I have written specifically about the Windsor hum in August 2011, with a follow up in September 2011. I have written about the hums around the world in general many times. I'll review what they could mean below the news. But first, the WSJ story:

Canadians Make a Racket Over Mysterious 'Windsor Hum'
Unexplained Noise Spurs Diplomatic Fracas At Detroit Border; Americans Can't Hear It
Last month, Bob Dechert, a senior aide to Canada's foreign minister, was dispatched to Detroit with an important diplomatic mission: To stop a highly annoying noise. The so-called Windsor hum, described as a low-frequency rumbling sound, has rattled windows and knocked objects off shelves in this border community just across the Detroit River from the Motor City. Locals have said it sounds like a large diesel truck idling, a loud boom box or the bass vocals of Barry White."

Barry White? Stop for a LOL moment. The journalists must have had a blast writing this. Ahem. To continue.

"Windsor residents have blamed the hum for causing illness, whipping dogs into frenzies, keeping cats housebound and sending goldfish to the surface in backyard ponds. Many have resorted to switching on their furnace fan all season to drown out the noise. Even weirder, Americans can't seem to hear it. Canadians find that suspicious—especially since their research suggests the hum is coming from the Yankees' side—and accuse U.S. officials of staying silent over the noise."

Those damn Yankees!

"The government of Canada takes this issue seriously," Mr. Dechert said after his recent fact-finding trip, which included a visit to a heavily industrialized area on the American side of the river that some Canadian scientists believe is to blame for the hum."

I can't figure out why the Americans cannot hear the noise.

"The sound has been plaguing Windsor residents on and off for two years. Last May, a particularly loud eruption shook Windsor resident David Robins as he watched the National Basketball Association playoffs. The room began to vibrate with a loud throbbing noise. Mr. Robins hit mute, fearing he had gone overboard on volume. But the noise persisted. Stepping outside, Mr. Robins said he found the "entire neighborhood pulsating." "To be honest, I was scared," he said."

Now that IS scary. There is more at the link.

I explored the concept of the Windsor Ontario strange noise here, from the aspect of spiritual warfare ramping up and showing an example of a verse from the bible.

I explored the strange noises here, from the aspect of the verse in Jeremiah that 'A noise shall come even to the ends of the earth.'

Now I've said before that there will be supernatural events happening in greater visibility as we approach the rapture, because afterwards will be total supernatural, visible, all the time. The inexplicable will occur on a normal, daily basis. In advance of that, the supernatural (or inexplicable, if that makes you more comfortable) will happen more frequently even though we haven't been raptured yet.

I've also said, however, that just because something is currently inexplicable, it doesn't mean it always will be. The strange noise may turn out to have a normal explanation.

However, there are a few things that speak against that. First, it has been going on for only two years or so. The industrial area across the river has been in existence for so much longer, so one would wonder why the noises began relatively late. Secondly, the officials brought in seismographs and tested for tectonic activity. The noise must be persistent pervasive, and annoying enough to persuade officials to take such an action.

One thing I noticed in the article is that the witnesses say it is getting louder. That is the most interesting thing of all. HuffPo noted back in January that it is escalating.

As for noises, descriptions of them pervade the bible. In 1 Thessalonians 4:16 we read of the rapture, "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:". In that verse we read of a shout, a voice and an instrument. Noise.

In Revelation 4:5 we read, "And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God." In this verse we read of thunderings and voices.

Isaiah 6:4 we read of Isaiah's vision of heaven and the voices of the seraphims shouting holy, holy, holy were so loud they moved the posts of the doors.

There are many more such examples of noises heard by the visionaries and apostles throughout the Old Testament and the New. We're drawing closer to the time of the end. The veil between our physical dimension and God's physical dimension is lifted bit by bit, waiting for the final moment when it tears and there is an irruption into the world of demons, supernatural events, angels, and spiritual warfare made visible. We praise our Savior for making the word of prophecy sure (2 Peter 1:16-21). We praise Him for alerting us to the times and the events he foretold by His book, written out of time and given to us who dwell inside time. We praise Him who will lift us out of time at His will and bring us to the eternal.

If you are worried about these things coming upon the earth, and there will be worse coming, so much worse that men have heart attacks upon looking at them (Luke 21:26), then be saved now. Believe that Jesus is the man-divine son of God, come to seek and save the lost and by His sacrificial act of shedding blood as the holy and pure sacrifice acceptable to God made the way for us into heaven. Believe He was crucified, was buried and rose on the third day by the power of God. Believe He is the substitution for taking on our sin and God's wrath. If you understand that your sins are very real and make God very angry, confess them to your Lord, and Jesus will forgive you.

In the WSJ article they said that the noises are "no laughing matter." They aren't. The one man said that the noise was scary. They are. Because if they presage something worse, that something is so petrifying that people drop dead on the spot. And if you draw your last breath before you know Jesus as savior you will enter the eternal as His enemy and dwell in the Lake of Fire. Please repent now.

"And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel."(Mark 1:15)


  1. If you don't know the words, all you can do IS hum.

  2. Perhaps if it is supernatural, instead of it being something demonic, maybe it has something to do with the earth coming apart, with all the earthquakes, etc., in order to prepare for the ressurection of the dead in Christ. They will be first in the rapture and then us in the twinkling of an eye. So maybe these strange sounds have something to do with the earth getting ready to give up its dead in the Lord. Just a thought/ Amen!

    1. Good thought, Anonymous! Could well be!

  3. Hi Elizabeth,
    I live in Michigan and the town that I grew up in (Port Huron) is just across Lake Huron from Sarnia Ont. when I read this I immediately did a search and there have been several michigan reports about the strange noises. I don't think the WSJ did their research very well, either that or Michigan authorities are keeping quiet. I wonder if the noise is linked somehow with the strange metal boxes that have surfaced like the one in Oregon?
    Oh well, what can I say...Come Lord Jesus!
    ~God Bless~

  4. I saw on Youtube that someone put all those humming and trumpeting sounds together in chronological order. It sounded like an orchestra tuning up. I believe for Christians, it is the sound of the trumpets signaling we are end times, however long that lasts. For non-believers, it's probably goes unnoticed or remains a mystery. Discernment.
