Holy crap, other people in WV are reporting the rumble noise? I was tempted to post a reply earlier to another thread regarding the noise, but considering I haven't a recording or video to back it up I decided not to pipe up...but I've heard it as well. I thought it might have been a train but when I saw the video from FL it was very reminiscent of what I heard. I don't know if this is a common factor or not, but the noise I heard lasted for quite some time as well - it stopped about midway through a second episode of the show I was watching...so that's about 45 minutes. I know I'm new, so please don't disregard my comment due to this.
IMPORTANT! -- Reports coming in from around the world... Suggest Pin Quote [+] At first, I didn't pay too much attention to this, but now it's starting to get interesting to say the least. There are reports, and videos, of a loud rumbling sound that shakes the ground and buildings of observers all over the world. There is the most recent one in Florida, a report from San Diego and another from England. All report the same thing: loud, long and uninterrupted sound that sounds like a freight train or thunder, some as much as 20 minutes long. The US weather service initially claimed it was something called "ducting", where the sound of a distant thunderstorm travels for long distances and is heard far from the actual storm. However, I've read that they have stopped making this claim and the USGS has denied earthquakes are involved. Also, power outages at the same time as these events are also being reported. Any information you can provide might help us to figure this out or, worst case scenario, give us a head up as to what we're up against...
The Taos Hum The Taos Hum is a faint, low-frequency humming noise heard in and near the town of Taos, New Mexico. Not only is the hum's source a mystery, but its peculiar qualities are as well: only about 2 percent of Taos residents - about 1,400 people - can hear it.
The low hum - between 30 and 80 Hz on the frequency scale - has been described by hearers as sounding like a diesel engine idling in the distance or having a slow beat-note sound. Some people perceive it as being louder indoors than outdoors.
More mysterious still, some hearers who are bothered by the sound have tried earplugs and other acoustic quieting devices to block it out - to no effect. Investigations by scientists, including some from the prestigious Sandia National Laboratories, have failed to find a source or even a plausible explanation for the phenomenon. One theory is that the source is the U.S. Navy's ELF (extra-low frequency) communications system that is used to communicate with its submarine fleet. The Navy, of course, accepts no such responsibility. If you'd like to hear the Taos Hum, here are some recordings in .wav format (click icon to listen): Hum 1 Hum 2
Taos isn't the only town afflicted with an annoying hum. According to The Taos Hum Homepage, "Nearly every state in the U.S. has at least one 'hum hearer' report, including Alaska and Hawaii. The largest number of reports come from the southwestern U.S., the Pacific Northwest, and southeastern states.
Worldwide, the hum has caused such problems in the U.K. and Sweden that hum-hearer support groups have formed there. There are hum-hearer reports from Italy and from Mexico." The Bristol Hum is the most widely reported hum in the U.K.
Mystery Booms * In January, 1999, a loud boom at 12:15 a.m. disturbed the residents of Colorado Springs and Denver. Some witnesses said the noise was accompanied by a flash of light in the sky. There was no electrical storm. Although it could have been a sonic boom, the military denied any military activity in the area.
* On January 10, 1999, dozens of people in Fairfield, Ohio reported a stunning, explosive sound. No cause was ever discovered. * Thousands of homes were rattled by two huge, mysterious booms 30 miles southeast of Los Angeles just before 10 p.m.
in May of 1998. Residents described the sounds as explosions, earthquake noises, and thuds. The two booms occurred about five minutes apart. * Two very loud skyquakes startled hundreds of people on the beaches of Ocean City, Md.
on July 30, 1998. No planes were in sight, and the sounds seemed to be coming from some miles offshore. * A mysterious boom reverberated through Narragansett Bay, R.I.
on August 1, 1998 at 9:30 p.m. Investigating officials could not find the source of the noise. *
On Sept. 16, 1997, the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill was rocked by a boom that shook the ground and registered 1.1 on the Richter scale. Readings from ground-monitoring equipment showed that the energy did not come from the air, ruling out a sonic boom. *
On December 17, 1997, a huge aerial blast rattled windows and blew open storm doors in Rogersville, Mo., a town 13 miles east of Springfield. Again, the Air Force denied the possibility of a sonic boom caused by one of its aircraft.

Find out where the nearest Natural gas relief valve is. When they bleed them it is crazy loud and long. I gave the lat and long to the 2 near my parants house in later post.
At certain times, the high-speed device was still, and a deep, throbbing beat was audible; and then the high-speed rotation began again, and the sound increased rapidly to a high vibrating crescendo in the upper 50,000 U/min. range or higher. Simultaneously, the slower 249.6 U/min rotation again became audible. The vibration was produced by the high-speed rotation of approximately 29,000 U/min., which accelerated to over 59,000 U/min. This was most certainly not a normal sound!
None of the other eyewitnesses saw any type of spaceship, but Meier said that he could see it from below and observe a strange effect. As the sound went up on the scale, the ship became more transparent, and when the pitch became lower, it looked denser again.
