Humming Noise May Be Coming From Zug Island

RIVER ROUGE (AP) – Canadian authorities say a mysterious humming noise plaguing residents of Windsor, Ontario, may be coming from a heavily industrialized Detroit-area island.

The Detroit Free Press and The Detroit News report Friday that seismic monitors in Windsor trace the hum to the area of Zug Island in the Detroit River.

Zug Island is part of River Rouge. The city’s Mayor Michael Bowdler said in a statement he has hired legal and technical experts to “find the source of this nuisance” and fix the problem.

Complaints about a humming noise started earlier this year in Windsor. People in the Detroit area also have made complaints.
