I found some very interesting information on Viking mythology while researching Aztec and Norse similarities. The Aztec prophecy of the ending age of
the fifth sun has some connections with the ending age of Norse mythology. They both speak about a great earthquake and a diminishing sun. The Viking
final day is called Ragnarok
or Fate of the gods. This event is a war between the Norse ruling
gods and their enemies. All the ruling gods and their foes kill each other at the end. One of the characters in this war has something related to the
strange sound phenomena. This creature is the hound named Garmr who lives in the underworld and guards Hel’s gate.
One of the refrains of Völuspá uses Garmr's howling to herald the coming of Ragnarök:
Now Garm howls loud before Gnipahellir,
The fetters will burst, and the wolf run free;
Much do I know, and more can see
Of the fate of the gods, the mighty in fight.
Garmr the hound is in the foreground. Behind the dog is the woman named Hel. She presides over the underworld. Her father’s name is Loki. Garmr is
prophecied to kill the war god named Tyr. The name Tuesday is derived from Tyr's name. Three other days of the week are named after Norse gods:
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
After reading this passage about Garmr I felt it might be related to the strange noises being heard all over the earth. Many ancient cultures apply
gods to heavenly and earthly activities.
Here are some threads that are popular on the strange noise phenomena within the Fragile Earth section.

My attention was drawn to this subject after developing the following thread in the Ancient & Lost Civilization section:
