Residents of a neighborhood in Rochester, New York say that they are being tormented by a mysterious humming sound that has plagued them for the past year. Much like many other odd noises that have gripped communities in the past, the hum is particularly annoying because nobody can quite put their finger on what exactly the sound is. Nonetheless, they are fed up with hearing it.
"I want to locate it to stop it. That's all I want," declared beleaguered resident Lora Dean to a Rochester newspaper, "I cannot live like this." And, as if the sound could not get maddening enough, she says that it's almost like an earworm to those unfortunate enough to encounter it. "Once you hear it," she lamented, "regardless of its volume and audibility, it's a sound you can't get rid of."
