Strange noise on Highway 17 South of Wawa


If you’re driving along a portion of the Highway 17 South of Wawa you might hear something strange.

A viewer heard something on Saturday night that got him wondering.

“I started hearing an high-pitched whine noise on Saturday night while on the shore at Sandy Beach. I also heard it after midnight on Sunday and at 7am this morning,” writes J. Cooper.  Cooper also submitted a few photos of what he found.
