I, as well as family and friends, have been hearing this strange sound in the atmosphere since Thursday the 21st. Listen closely among the birds chirping and the sole vehicle drive by and you will hear the high pitch whine. It does not alternate/fluctuate at all and has been continuous for five days now.

That is odd, any Bill Clinton sightings there? He is known to let out flatulence from time to time!

I hear it. Is it some sort of cricket? How long have you lived there?

Sorry, it's not insects. Insects respond to all types of variables -movement, air, light, dark, etc.,. Their sound production varies. A good example would be a Cicada.

Here is an example for you bug lovers:

My recorded sound is constant! It does not fluctuate and has been constant for five days now.

Another poster here started a thread on the 14th and states it's occurring in northern Louisiana also.

Well there are two broods emerging in 14 states One of which is Louisiana. But what do I know I've only been listening to them for 40+ years.

52 years here and I still love Nature and it's fury. It is the only perfect thing.

It would be nice to know what is causing the constant high-pitch whining noise. Don't you all agree?

I think it it a 17 year cycle cicada, I remember once in my younger years hearing them before. Of course, you would have to be old enough to have heard them before. they still sound eerie even though I have heard them before.

having grown up in an area that broke records with its cicada broods, i disagree with your hypothesis, this sound is nothing like a cicada brood, so no your statement of how long you've been listening to cicadas does not venerate your opinion.


having also experienced first hand some of the worlds longest train tunnels, id say this sound sounds very similar to the noise you would hear standing in or at one end of a long tunnel while a train has entered and is traveling toward, from the other side but still a great distance away.


the fact that you think this is cicadas makes me wonder if you are even listening to the same particular noise from the video, you might be focusing on the inconsequential background noise of insects rather then the constant whirring noise in question.

Yet the sound is miraculously appear in 14 different states. Which is coincidently where the two current broods are emerging at.


But you're entitled to your opinion. I guess we'll find out when the cicadas are gone.

Who knows if there's some kind of hidden message behind those sounds.. Like some kind of instructions for the ones who know what it says?

Most likely a bird. Maybe a new type of airplane engine. Like one of those hybrid electrical types.

Definitely not cicadas. That is some kind of whirring mechanical sound. It sounds like somebody mixing dough in their Kitchenaid about a mile away. Weird. I would see if there is any quarry/mine/farming activity going on withing the surrounding miles.

Might help if you provide a more exact location....

I'm in central Arkansas and haven't heard anything unusual.

I am not saying this is what it is, but what it sounds like to me is a tea kettle whistling. That couldn't continue for five days, of course. That's the pitch, though. Over how large an area can this be heard?

This is NOT cicadas! I know what those sound like, and it's nothing like this. Not grasshoppers (which is what locusts are), or crickets, either. If this is some sort of insect, it's not like any I have heard in fifty years, and I have lived a lot of places.

It is more like a wind sound, or, as someone else said, a fast train sound, or the kettle I suggested, than it is like insects. No wind in the video, though.

i think its a combo of infrasound and acoustic gravity waves, ive read the wikipedia of how infrasound can be brought to audable levels by applying pressure waves

In our area that "weird" sound everyone is reporting is cicadas! Young'uns are freaking out on social media I'm told.
The foundation on the west side of our house was covered in them a few days ago. Until the rain washed them away their shells were on everything. For our area it is a 13 year brood according to the UK Ag site. www2.ca.uky.edu...
Driving through a heavily-wooded wetland last night, it did indeed sound mechanical and very alien.

Please listen to the OP before posting what something is elsewhere or what is "abuzz" on social media (pun intended). There is no resemblance to cicadas whatsoever. Cicada sound is so predictable that you can do Fourier analysis and tell the exact species with no other info. It is not a buzz in any way.

This is something industrial and human in origin. I am convinced that if the OP asks around the locals, they will find that there is some operation like a rock quarry that has been crushing rock for the last week(s), or some other kind of processing that goes in weeks long batches like harvesting a million acres of wheat or some such thing.
