From an email:

“Dear PoPville,

There’s a high pitched ringing pervading the area around Union Market. Any insight? Other complaints? Feels like some kind of torture to be honest. It is constant. Been going since last Wednesday.”

Others hearing this as well?

Ed. Note: Back in 2010 we posted “Anti-teen Noise-weapon Hits DC at Chinatown Metro”, which were then promptly removed. Then in 2016 we posted Anti Pigeon Devices Removed!! “Both make intermittent, high-pitched squeals that are piercingly loud, at least to my 30-year-old ears”. And in July we had a report of a similar noise outside Farragut West.
