Unusual Screaming Sounds Coming from the Sky Recorded in Bryan, Texas

It would appear someone changed the simulation's thunder sound effect

YouTuber Daniel Robb recently shared footage of unusual screaming sounds emanating from the sky during a lightning storm in Bryan, Texas on May 27, 2020.

“It was so loud it made the hairs on my arms and my neck stand tall. It filled the entire night sky! I’ve never heard anything like it before.”

Robb began by filming the storm through his apartment window at around 8:30 p.m. Watching the video, the “screams” can be heard at fairly regular intervals. As Robb states in the footage, the noises consisted of a “vibration sound” followed by a loud shriek “like a banshee…a blood-curdling scream.” These screams went on for at least half an hour

According to Robb, there’s not a railroad yard nearby, nor a factory, or anything else he can think of that might be responsible for the unusual loud noises. Some have speculated that it could have been a siren, or perhaps extremely strong winds (which have been known to cause extreme howling noises). Another claim is that the shrieks were caused by a malfunctioning air vent at a nearby laboratory. This may very well be the case, though some aren’t convinced.

Later in the video, Robb hopped onto his bike and went out searching for the sound’s origin. He couldn’t find it. According to his description, the sound seemed to originate from a great distance away, and yet was extremely loud.

Other neighbors joined him outside, curious about the strange banshee wailing.

To add to the mystery, earlier that morning, Robb witnessed a “bunch of jets” flying nearby (seen in another video), specifically over the area where the screaming would later occur. This was followed by what he described as very strange weather. And then the screaminig sound began. The video also highlights a dark spot among the clouds, revealed during lightning strikes.

Stranger still: One comment mentions the possibility of a Thunderbird. “If it’s there and screaming like that,” the commenter wrote, “I worry something is very, VERY wrong…to me this really marks the end of the world.”

  1. The sound is a pressure release valve releasing steam at the Global Health Research complex at the Texas A&M campus.

    1. I live quite close to a pulp and paper mill and have never ever heard a sound like that when the steam valves are releasing pressure. The sound is quite loud but is constant and sounds more like air being blasted rather than a scream.

      Strange things are happening these days around the world. I think we should be more observant and open to the possibility that some things cannot be explained.

  2. I’ve been researching for a paper I’m writing about all the strange things happening since last fall with weather and environmental, public health, and political events. I’m finding many summits, scholarly pubs, tests, etc. from scientists worldwide and institutions like Harvard, Yale, Cambridge, Oxford, Beijing Normal Univ. and others. Also from gov’t institutions like NASA and the Air Force, and corporations like Boeing and other big corps)Everything I found comes from respected sources. In a nutshell, they say we’re at the point of climate emergency and we have to start cooling the planet-most likely by injecting sulfur dioxide in the stratosphere for a few months at a time every year for many years.(It’s cheap, easy, gets results fast) The optimal time to start is 2020, or it could be too late and we’ll pass the point of no return. Tactical planning says new kinds of aircraft will have to be built. This made my mouth drop open {
    SO2 is dangerous to people/wildlife/environment(causes the same symptoms as the C-word virus in humans) so it would have to be kept from the public. One scientist from Oxford speaking to world leaders even mentions using a pandemic as cover.
    I don’t claim to know what’s going on. I’m just a writer who found scary news and facts I think people deserve to know. After doing hardcore research for months I believe it could be happening now and has been since at least Oct. 2019. Many big things that have been going on in the world since then fit.
    I don’t know if the noises and other weirdness at your place could be related, but it makes me wonder. There is an Air Force base near you, just outside of Bryan. I hope you and anyone reading this will look at the links I mentioned. I’m going to share this wherever there may be a connection however insignificant it may seem. Take care. 🙂 PS A couple of other interesting things online: Gov’t anosmia/threshold tests that see how much sulfur dioxide can be in the outside air before a human can smell it. And House Hearing, 111th Congress 2009 & 2010 everything about implementing climate action plan.)

    1. Man I would love to learn more about all the research and links you are working on and looking at. That sounds very plausible given these circumstances.
