World’s Tallest Building Burj Khalifa Creaks During Wind Storm: VIDEO


The uploader, an inhabitant of Dubai's massive Burj Khalifa tower, writes:

This almost spooky noise occurred for a few minutes during the strongest winds. As much as people like to think large skyscrapers rock back and forth a lot and make you sea sick - you actually couldn't feel a thing. Only this calm peaceful noise of the tower handling the winds.

Peaceful? Eh. Eerie? Definitely.

Watch and listen, AFTER THE JUMP...
