Recently, many Anchorage residents have heard a strange noise in the early morning hours. A loud noise comes in a distant hum, gets louder, and then disappears.
Anchorage is the largest city in Alaska, located in the south central part of the state on the shores of Cook Bay.
People many kilometers from each other report that a strange sound abruptly wakes them, sometimes one or even several times for several hours. But no one knows what exactly causes this mysterious metal moan.
The last time it was heard was around 5 a.m. Monday. This signal woke residents from the city center to West Anchorage.
It has been described as creepy, symphonic and also sporadic, sounding for about 20 seconds and then disappearing. This sound is internally loud. You feel this sound.
“It’s almost like a foghorn, and screeching metal on metal. It sounds like a submarine scraping the bottom of a pool or something,”
Another eyewitness describes this rumble as an “underwater moan.”
