'Strange noises' echoed in the streets of downtown Montreal on Halloween

It was only fitting that ‘strange noises’ were heard in the streets of downtown Montreal on Halloween.

Reddit user INDIGO, posted a video to Streamable, claiming the noises sounded like “a mix between a fire alarm, cars screeching, and aliens from a sci-fi movie.” The apparent haunting was recorded on the corner of Guy and Fort Street.

Fortunately, we’re not part of a new┬áCloverfield movie. It’s actually the sounds of┬átrenchless pipe lining which the City of Montreal sent out an advisory for, a couple days earlier.

Sensible sure, but a Halloween haunting would have been more fitting.

Montreal Redditors had their own theories of what the eerie sounds were all about:

Nice try, Montreal. We know the sounds of ghost whales and thousands of balloons when we hear them, especially on Halloween.
