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.”
