'Sonic Attacks' In Cuba May Have Been Crickets Chirping

Scientists say the 'sonic attacks' on US diplomats in Cuba in late 2016 may have actually been loud Caribbean crickets.
The noise at the time was thought to be connected to physical symptoms including hearing loss, speech problems, balance issues, headaches, etc.
"The calling song of the Indies short-tailed cricket (Anurogryllus celerinictus) matches, in nuanced detail, the AP recording in duration, pulse repetition rate, power spectrum, pulse rate stability, and oscillations per pulse," insect researchers wrote in a paper published online in bioRxiv on January 4.
The authors also noted that "the fact that the sound on the recording was produced by a Caribbean cricket does not rule out the possibility that embassy personnel were victims of another form of attack."
