Mysterious shrieking sound leaves Oregon residents baffled
A mysterious shrieking sound has left the residents of one Oregon neighborhood seriously perplexed.
Dave Nemeyer, fire marshal of the Forest Grove Fire and Rescue in Forest Grove, Oregon, told ABC News that he first learned of the strange noise after a local resident recorded and shared a video of it on the city's Facebook page.
"It's definitely a horrendous noise," Nemeyer said. "I have no idea what the noise is. [The resident] described to us that it was coming from the middle of the street. To me, it sounds like the sound of train tracks, that metal screeching sound, but there are no train tracks near her home ... so that's obviously ruled out."
Mystery sound frustrates people in a west Forest Grove neighborhood. Where it could be coming from? #LiveOnK2 @ 11pm pic.twitter.com/p0inj5TBr2— Chris Liedle (@chrisliedle) February 16, 2016
Rick Vanderkin, the city's public works superintendent, told ABC News that very few people have heard the sound, making it difficult to locate and even more difficult to make an "educated guess as to what's creating the noise." So far, officials have ruled out a water valve, a gas leak and wildlife as possible culprits.
Forest Grove resident Colleen Ahrens told ABC News affiliate KATU in Portland that she's been woken up three or four times by the sound.
"It almost sounds like someone needs to change their brakes," she said.
Ahrens said her husband is a mechanic and when she described the noise to him, he thought a worn brake pad could be the source. But after she listened to the recording, she's not so sure anymore.
Chester Epperson, who lives across the street from Ahrens, hadn't heard the sound himself, but dismissed it after KATU played the recording for him.
"Maybe 'The X-Files' back on TV again," Epperson joked. "High-pitched, it's got a pause. I'll keep my ears out." - ABC News.

Neighbors are trying to determine what is causing a loud alarm-like sound to randomly ring near Gales Creek Road.
Paula Lynch tells KOIN she first heard the noise about two weeks ago. Since then, she's heard it four other times. Her neighbor has heard it three times.
Both Lynch and her neighbor, who asked that her name not be used, describe the sound as loud and like a warning alarm.
"It's hard to identify what angle its coming from because it just kind of encompasses the area," Lynch said. "We're just hoping somebody might be able to identify it so we can report it and have it stop happening." Both the City of Forest Grove Public Works Department and Fire Department say they don't know where the noise is coming from. The fire department speculated the sound appeared to be some sort of air compressor, but said that crews would have to actually be in the neighborhood to identify the sound before making a determination.

A spokesperson with NW Natural said there have been no reports of any problems with the gas lines in the neighborhood. The spokesperson added that, while the company does have release valves, if gas were to be released, people would be able to smell it.
Lynch posted a recording she made of the video onto Facebook. It has been shared repeatedly.
Those who have heard the sound in person describe it as being extremely loud. Lynch said she has to cover her ear immediately to protect her hearing. - KOIN 6.
