Ghostly wailing sounds heard at New York's Freedom Tower

New Yorkers are wondering what the strange sounds that they are hearing resonating from the sky. Odd wailing noises seem to be echoing off buildings in Manhattan, and it's leaving a lot of folks scared, People Magazine reported yesterday.

The eerie sounds seem to be coming from the newly constructed Freedom Tower located at One World Trade Center in Manhattan. The structure replaced the original six-building complex of the World Trade Center that was attacked by terrorists on September 11, 2001. At 1776 feet, the building now takes the rank as the tallest building in the United States.

Several people called in to report the loud wailing noises that were heard earlier this week. Some of them were able to record the strange phenomena and even post it on Youtube.

"It's a skyquake, they are happening everywhere in the world. Really creepy sounds, no one knows where or why they happen. Some conspiracy people say it's HAARP," Michael Arazan said today.

Tribeca resident Kenny Cummings told the New York Post that "it almost sounds like a Gregorian chant and it will even hold a single note." Other New York residents believe that the new World Trade Center tower is haunted, and the screaming sounds are from the ghosts of the victims of the terrorist attacks.

The sounds coming from the Freedom Tower might just be the wind but that doesn't explain other noises that are being heard all over the world. Earlier this year, people in Missouri and Tennessee heard similar sounds.

What are these odd noises? That is one question on a lot of everyone's minds right now. This question may continue to go unanswered. Many officials are left baffled and are scratching their heads.

"At this point, nobody seems to know. The geologists say it's not in the ground, the Air Force says it's not in the air, the astronomers say it's not from space, so we're running out of options," one official said.

Some people think that the weird noises are paranormal related, others say they are extraterrestrial based, and a few folks claim that they have a biblical meaning. Others believe that there is a more scientific explanation or it is a hoax. As of right now, no one seems to have a clear answer as to what these strange sounds are.
