Texas: Man terrified at screaming heard during thunderstorm

Texas: A man is left terrified after hearing the sound of screaming during a thunderstorm. He says he ‘saw something when the lightning was flashing’.

A Texas resident has been left seriously creeped out after recording strange, piercing screams echoing through the night in Texas.

Daniel Robb, who lives in the city of Bryan, recorded a high-pitched shrieking on May 23 and said it sounded like something of a banshee, a female spirit in Irish mythology.

He shared the footage on YouTube and claimed the unexplained noise was coming from the sky.

He points at the cloud and says: "There's a sound screaming, so freaking loud and it's coming from up there.

"That's coming from, like up in the sky, outside of my apartment. What is that?"

The unnerving howl happens every few minutes when the stormy weather lights up the sky.

Daniel added: "It was so loud it made the hairs on my arms and my neck stand tall.

"It filled the entire night sky! I've never heard anything like it before."

Viewers were also shocked by the odd phenomenon as they tried to find out what it is.

"It likely is a banshee," one agreed.

"This is super creepy, it's like demons screaming in the sky," a second one wrote.

Some of them took a comical guess on prehistoric creatures like pterodactyls being the cause of the sound while others claimed it's something coming out of a biblical scene.

One viewer tried to debunk the mystery and said it sounded like a "pressure safety valve lifting".
