Never heard of one of them before, sure does sound like the culprit to me.
This sounds exactly like the video sound!

I live in a small town in Northern BC, while I was at work I got a txt from a friend who lives in Terrace, a fairly large town a few hours away:
The whole town was shaken up, when in the morning of an otherwise perfectly peaceful day the skies boomed with this insanely loud 'noise' that then ended in a long, rolling boom. This was LOUD, it pretty much emptied every building in the city.
The sound quality on this is amazing, this is some of the best recorded data on this phenomena. My guess is some kind of spike of celestial radiation, perhaps not even something originating from our Sun, hitting our magnetosphere and ionosphere, and somehow 'punching through' where it resulted in this bizarre harmonic resonance in the sky.
Anyone else have a theory?

The problem with attempts at scientific explanations like that one is that it fails dismally to explain why - if it a natural phenomenon - the sounds have not been reported for decades instead of just the past year or so. Using a lot of technical language to give the impression of a rigorous scientific explanation cannot convince anyone if it fails to explain basic facts about the nature and circumstances of the reported sounds.

Sorry, but what the ****?
I played like 4 seconds of the video and got chills and had to turn it off. Something about that sound is just not right...

The best explanation so far that I've read in the replies? Trains.
But then I got to thinking. I myself live about a mile away from where trains go by and have never heard this sound. I also work literally right next to where trains frequently go by (they are right behind our parking lot) and I have never-ever heard trains sound like this - not even once, so....
LOL. Just kidding!
It's probably not trains.
Interesting post, though.
It sounds like someone is pulling something made of metal across something (like a floor) mixed in with the sounds of a dying mechanical elk. Yes, I said a dying mechanical elk. (Roll the Twilight Zone theme song.)

....locals and the city clerk claim that the roadscraper blade was being dragged to even out the scraping edge. Given this, and that you can hear a diesel engine laboring in the background as well, I say this has got to be placed in the solved basket.
Why they were scraping at 7:30 am is beyond me.
Exactly my thoughts on these videos. Also, you would also expect there to be more than one video of each event.

God kinda sucks at trumpet.
I prefer this comment, probably more accurate
Nobody finds it strange that in ALL of these videos, no neighbors are out in the streets looking around? That it's always a LONE camerman looking around? You don't think there would be people running outside with their heads cocked back saying literally "WHAT THE F... IS THAT SOUND"?????
