There have been several guesses as to what is causing the mysterious noise in a Forest Grove neighborhood, but police say they don’t want to hear them through their emergency lines.
The noise doesn’t pose a threat to the community, Forest Grove Police said, and people should not clog up the 9-1-1 emergency line with their take on what is the source.
The reports started after people living in a west Forest Grove neighborhood reported hearing a high-pitched whistling noise.
Since then, they say their voicemail inboxes have been flooded with theories from callers across the globe. The fire department, engineering, public works and other city departments are also being inundated by calls.
