Something is shaking homes and causing confusion in an Ohio city neighborhood

Homeowners in Canton, Ohio say a mysterious vibration is beginning to cause their houses to shake, and they have no idea why. One homeowner says this has all started within the last year, and it's like nothing he's ever experienced before.

"It's disturbing. We've had pictures fall off the wall," said Mackey Howell, a resident of Canton for over 20 years.

Howell says he's felt and heard the vibrations before roughly five times over the last year. He says sometimes it will last an hour, other times, it'll last all night.

"I don't think I've ever experienced it during the daytime," he said.

Residents say the vibrations can get so intense it can be painful to their ears.

Howell says he called the police twice, but says they're not sure what it is either.

"I'm familiar with all of those sounds whether it the airport , the train and I-275 makes," he said. "This is something very, very different."

Canton city officials have begun to take notice and are investigating, asking neighbors to document when they notice the vibrations.
