Shape: Unknown
Duration: 5 minutes
Extremely loud rushing wind sound, swirling, slowing moving west.

An extremely LOUD rushing wind sound, like a Concord directly above us, moving south slowly. There was no wind, just this very loud swirling noise.

No lights, it was overcast though. It was so loud we expected the buildings to explode. It continued south and faded after 5 or more minutes.

I have never heard anything like it. It was not a plane, and this area is not known for tornadoes. The roaring, swirling sound was astronomical, huge.
