The Hum – SSE power told to fix it

The Hum
Devastating Hum

It’s the scourge of The Highlands and blights Loch Ness.

There are even fears that it may have killed Nessie or driven her away.

Known as The Hum, it is a low frequency dull buzzing sound that some people hear or “feel” and it is thought to be generated by electrical generators in wind farms, hydro electric turbines and sub stations.

Clan Chief Lord Lovat complained that he is sometimes unable to sleep due to a ringing in his ears and said, “If people don’t take it seriously the next you know is SSE will be building a station next to your house, it will create a noise and they will get away with it. It’s in the public interest to hold their feet to the fire and everyone is protected by the rules that they are not adhering to.”

A local community councillor said, “If people don’t take it seriously the next you know is SSE will be building a station next to your house, it will create a noise and they will get away with it. It’s in the public interest to hold their feet to the fire and everyone is protected by the rules that they are not adhering to.”

Other locals are worried The Hum may be causing tinnitus.

Nessie back in Covid 19 Lockdown

Nessie Covid19 Concern
Nessie Covid19 Concern

The Scottish government has ordered all of mainland Scotland back into full lockdown and the borders are closed. No one is permitted to be out of their homes for anything but a few reasons including buying groceries and essential medical appointments.

Obviously this leads to a quiet time for the Loch Ness Monster. She had been keeping a lower profile lately and will definitely not want to place herself at risk of catching any flu type virus.

Leader of The Loch Ness Research Project, Professor Kettle, spoke of his concerns: “I have been looking for cryptid in this loch for fifty years and this is probably the scariest set of circumstances the area has ever faced. People must keep away from the water and protect our monster from infection”.

The Scottish Environmental Protection Agency was unavailable for comment at time of publication.

Blue-green algae threatens Loch Ness

Algae
Toxic Algae in Loch Ness

Like something out of a horror movie, new blue-green algae blooms have been found in and around Loch Ness and warnings issued. Iridescent and beautiful, the blue-green algae is able to produce toxins that are linked to illness, or even death, in humans and animals.

Anyone coming across the blooms of cyanobacteria should flee at once and be extra vigilant.

The killer algae is invading the United States with emergencies being declared in more and more areas.
