Blamed for Wellington Hum
A low-pitched humming sound has been troubling residents in the Mt Victoria, Newtown and Mt Cook area since Saturday.
Many are now pointing the finger at the Singapore navy frigate Stalwart which was berthed in Wellington Harbour for the past week, but a few complaints to council have continued since the boat's departure yesterday.
The constant hum has attracted up to 40 noise complaint calls since Saturday and about 30 emails theorising on the cause from around the country.
Wellington City Council spokesman Richard MacLean said the frigate left Wellington yesterday and though many on the waterfront had theorised the ship was to blame, there had been two more calls in the past 12 hours.
''A lot of people are saying they think it's the frigate. It's a plausible explanation because they usually have large diesel generators on board. It was a pretty large, grey, sinister-looking ship.''
MacLean said council would be watching the phone logs carefully to see if the number of calls died down now that the ship had left.
Wellington City Council has "no idea what might be causing the noise."
