Similar low-pitched sounds have been reported by people in the US, UK, Costa Rica, Russia, Czech Republic, Australia and Manchester since the summer of 2011.

In some instances the noises produced a loud rumbling sound like a thunderstorm but in others it is more like a 'groaning'.
They have been labelled by many as the 'sound of the Apocalypse' and now it seems they have made their way to Halton.
Sue Carman, of Plumley Gardens, sent a recording of the sounds taken from her home to the Weekly News.
She said: "It is a really bizarre noise, hard to describe. It is almost like the buzz from a huge mechanical vibration that drones in and out.
"The first time we heard it my dogs went absolutely crazy and the stronger it got, it started to shake the windows.
"I haven't got a clue what it is. I am not trying to say it is some sort of alien or anything like that but after doing some research on the internet and hearing that this is happening all over the world, it does make you wonder.
"What make it even more strange is that it seems to happen exactly for an hour between 3.15am and 4.15am and loads of my neighbours say they have heard it too.
"I contacted Network Rail to see if they had been doing any overnight maintenance work in the area but they were just as confused about it as I am."
The internet has been buzzing with theories about what the sounds could be, with suggestions such as the Second Coming of Jesus and the end of the world put forward.
