Please read the comments and our history of what this noise is. It is real and we have recorded it and have had it confirmed by a certified forensic audio engineer to be a microwave pulse. It is causing the buzzing and the constant thudding. We have residents in our town who have filed formal complaints with the state regulatory agencies. We are being stonewalled by the State and the utilities. This is a health hazard. Please contact us for more information. We would like to also find out more from you.

You have no idea what YOU are talking about. The cideo is an ongoing diary of what is happening to our family and other residents of our town. You are in no position to cast stones or judge since you are not involved. People like you are dangerous.
If you truly absorbed the information you would gleen that the State and the Utilities are involved in an ongoing investigation. They tried to close our case but in light of forensic evidence proving dirty electricity and noise they could not avoid us any longer. Most likely you are a drone for the Industry. Very sad.

We are investigating the source here in CT that we've been damanated since 9/08 of the "HUM" as it's called throguh out the world. We are taking it to Congress that changes in the gas line are causing it, much research and statistics prove it. Checked out Livermore on gas maps, and it looks like you are loaded witht hem and possibly on the same PG&E line goinf through Sunnyvale upto San Bruno. FYI- 10 months before San Bruno - someone from Sunnyvale was on the internet looking for help how to locate their HUM problems source. I did reprot it toNTSB. If you are hearing a low pitched constant but varying intensity diesel like sound, join the humndreds of thousands suffering .
Closed in homes, and closed in turned off cars are the worst for the noise. You might want to join on the "yahoo Hum Forum" for compassion and ideas.

Had a similar situation when they replaced the windows in my home. Some double pane windows are very good at blocking mid-range sounds. Unfortunately with the midrange audio frequencies attenuated the low frequencies become much more noticeable.

OMG, this sound was sooo annoying at about 3:30 I woke up and it sounded pretty loud like a vibrating fan or something. It literally made my ears hurt. My husband couldn't hear it like I did which was odd,it took me forever to go back to sleep.

I hear this same very low frequency sound in the Winter Park/Fraser area in the mountains of colorado. I can hear it sometimes during the day, but especially at night. However, it is not present every night.

I have heard this in two different condos separated by four miles in this valley. My wife cannot hear it.

I estimate it is about 20hz, although it does fluctuate either in amplitude or perhaps slightly in frequency such that it feels like a subtle pulse. It is way below electrical 60hz buzz.

I really wish I knew what the source was, although I doubt I could make it stop. I have considered that it might be some kind of large wind buffet effect over the mountains and across the valley, but that is a wild guess.

By the way, earplugs only make it worse because they block out what little background noise there is, making it even more noticeable.

Funny, I experience the same thing. I used to think it was the neighbour in the basement running a fan but he swears blind its not him, so I believe him. I've been told it could be the hum or it could even be poltergiest. I'm getting it looked into in June this year - have had this for the past 18 months never before, and will be glad to get to the bottom of it!

I am experiencing the "exact same problem" in San Jose. My home is couple of blocks for the busy 280 and Saratoga Ave intersection and am used to the white noise. But this low pitch rumbling sound that is most noticeable in the early morning hours is absolutely driving me crazy. You go outside, hardly anything, come back into the house, and it is there in every room. Ear plugs don't help either (maybe they can't block very low frequencies). I did put in a new roof a few years ago so I will definitely look into the ridge possibility. This has started to affect every aspect of my life.
Please share any information you may find.

Hmmm, the lab does run a Sodar ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SODAR ) which is a sub sonic pulse emitter used for wind velocity profiling ...

Unless the lab has an unusual or special design, this doesn't sound like it could be it, as it appears they operate at far too high a freq to be responsible for the vibrations folks are hearing. This a very low frequency, certainly not in the Khz range as mentioned in the wiki.

I have checked the attic fan, air vents and asked neighbors about that noise and we all hear it but nobody can pinpoint the source. I'm in Springtown in Livermore.

I also live in northern New Jersey and I hear this low level noise with ground shaking like a train in the distance. It occurs every 15 minutes from 2 or 3 am untill around 5am. So strange.

You are all nut jobs. Conspiracy theory freaks. Increase your meds and STFU.
Especially those that fear the "evil" LLNL. If you were smart enough to be employed there you would know better.

I live in eureka in northern California and I hear the low buzz-like noise as I type this. All night every night I hear it until I fall asleep. I'm truly glad to know I'm not crazy or going deaf. The only viable idea I've read here is that its the PG&E lines in the ground or building. That would explain the same situation happening in different places. Let's figure this out!

Hello - I am in Los Altos area. For the past 3 months, I started to notice the very low-frequency humming noise as described by the very first poster "Had Enough". The noise can be heard within the house only. Day and night. My house was a newly built one since 10 years ago. It would not be a meter panel issue, would it? Who should I call to detect the source of the noise? Please advise. Much appreciated.

I dont remember how long ago we got new meters but I think it was about 8 months ago. The older homes have aluminum wires that can do strange things and the meter its self could cause a buzz sound even the wires that come up to the house are just laid in the dirt with a bad ground from the house. Now the big sound maker would be the High Power lines that cut right down the middle of springtown
Let me update something that I have found in the last week. When I lock up the house I have been working on in pleasantion I have to walk past the PGE meter and it makes a ton of noise that you can hear from inside the house. One more thing some of you should look at is the fence on the side of the house. If it is attached to the house it will transfer any sound from any other house that it is attached to. So if you have a neighbor that has a attic fan that is out of balance or maybe a bathroom fan that makes a ton of noise you will hear it because of the fence. That is one of the reasons a fence should never be attached to a home. The other reason has to do with termites.
