Uhhh... Anyone who watched this video with a decent sound system or headphones should laugh their ass off at the suggestion that this was the scraping of a grader blade. This was LOUD, and I mean loud in a way that had people freaked out all over the valley. Two people that I know messaged me about it that morning, one was woken up in their bed and the other was at work downtown where everyone ran outside because this noise was overwhelming, it had presence, it felt just like thunder in the same kind of intensity that makes you cringe like an animal. A grader blade? Uh, no.
It *may* be a hoax, but if so I don't know how they would do it. I have a friend with 30,000 watts of amps in his band room, and the speakers (and PA horns) to push that wattage through. If we were to trundle his stuff outside and point it all up at the sky and play that recording, it wouldn't be 'that kind of loud'. It would be loud, and you would hear it all over town, but you would simply point in a direction and say "hey, that sure is a loud noise coming from over there". Listen to the video, I think it is a perfect recording and example of just how insanely HUGE this noise was. It filled the sky, there were calls to the RCMP from a 30km radius of the town (and Terrace isn't a "small town", sorry by Canadian definition it a city) and if it was manmade then they are able to amplify the resonance and presence of sound output beyond what any concert speakers are capable of.
If anything, the potential that this is a hoax points to a secret club/cult of people pulling this off in various places in the World - similar to how crop circles seem so 'man designed' and yet we never see evidence that people are making them, or people caught halfway through a design, or rational explanations as to how they execute complex designs in the dark so quickly (the one at Stonehenge would have been seen by the staff of 25 security/etc).
It is time to gather up all recordings of this nature, and compare them. I was told there were recordings of this EXACT sound, not a similar sound, the EXACT SAME SOUND, made in Vancouver that same day. Vancouver is 600 miles away as the crow flies.
If people are responsible for this sound, they are using something else besides speakers as a way to produce it. They may have some neat trick where they use train tracks or something as a means to amplify and accentuate existing sound systems, all I know for sure is that the two friends I have in Terrace would punch a person in the face if they suggested this was a sound made by a 'grader blade'.

My thought is that its a group prank, numerous people writing on to Twitter etc claiming something and then it takes off. I'm not saying its never happened before and was real elsewhere but this one has a video as said with ZERO people outside yet there's this incredible ear shattering noise that can't be understood as its real impact from a poorly encoded Youtube video and not one person is checking it out.
I find that impossible to consider.

That one I like, the Kiwi sounds pretty genuine and you can hear birds reacting to the sounds as you'd expect when he goes out on the street, still could be a hoax.
I heard weird rumbling and whining noises one night at the end of our summer here in AU in Canberra one night, first thing I did was go to the geosciences au website and look for earthquakes in the area.edit on 1-9-2013 by mobtek because: xtra
Wookey recorded the bizarre moaning noises from her living room and then posted them online, where she saw other reports of people who'd heard similar noises. One resident thought someone was dragging a dumpster and the lack of wind that day allowed the sound to carry through the valley. However, Wookey's video appears to show a quite a bit of wind.
Some claim her video is fake, and that the sounds were taken from this scene in the 2011 horror movie "Red State."
The local police aren't sure where the sounds came from.
