The mysterious sound only Canadians can hear

It’s a low rumbling that rattles window panes and keeps locals up at night.

Although no one can seem to pinpoint what, exactly, is causing a mysterious hum that has plagued residents of Windsor, Ontario, for years, one theory in particular has taken hold.

The factories on Zug Island, which sits in the Detroit River and is closely guarded by Homeland Security, are likely the culprit. When Canadian researchers tasked with solving the mystery tried to get onto the island, they were turned away by the American government.

VICE News traveled to Windsor and Detroit, and made it onto Zug Island itself, to try to solve the mystery of the Windsor Hum.
