        Thunder from down under? I hear that's usually accompanied by a gas attack.

          Come this way, honored Odysseus, great glory of the Achaians, and stay your ship, so that you can listen here to our singing; for no one else has ever sailed past this place in his black ship until he has listened to the honey-sweet voice that issues from our lips; then goes on, well-pleased, knowing more than ever he did; for we know everything that the Argives and Trojans did and suffered in wide Troy through the gods' despite. Over all the generous earth we know everything that happens.

            Reports suggest US diplomats could have suffered hearing loss related to the use of covert sonic devices.
            Cuba's foreign ministry said it was investigating the allegations.
            It called the expulsion of its staff unjustified but said it was willing to co-operate with Washington to clarify what had happened.
            "Cuba has never, nor would ever, allow the Cuban territory to be used for any kind of action against accredited diplomats or their families," the ministry said.

              Canada's foreign ministry is investigating after at least one of its diplomats stationed in Cuba was treated for hearing loss and headaches.
              It comes a day after the US said its diplomats in Havana were experiencing strange physical symptoms.

                The number of U.S. government personnel targeted by a mysterious illness in Cuba last year is greater than the Trump administration has publicly acknowledged, according to multiple U.S. officials who told the Washington Free Beacon the Obama administration may have misled Congress about the full scope and nature of the attack.

                  U.S. officials confirmed to ABC News today that more than 10 officials had been affected by "incidents" appearing to target U.S. staff and government officials in Cuba.
                  Sources told ABC News that some U.S. officials were exposed to a sonic device in Havana that caused serious health problems and physical symptoms.
                  According to ABC affiliate WPLG in Miami, sources said the variety of symptoms suffered by those affected included headaches, vision issues, balance and walking issues and memory loss.

                  Some of them apparently suffered some amount of brain damage. And, of course, the Cuban government denies involvement.

                      WASHINGTON -- The United States on Friday abruptly warned Americans not to visit Cuba and ordered more than half its Havana embassy personnel to leave the island in a dramatic response to mysterious recent "specific attacks" harming the health of U.S. diplomats.

                        A newly revealed incident reported by a USAID officer who is based at the American embassy in Uzbekistan is raising suspicions Russia may have been involved and could have had a hand in bizarre attacks targeting U.S. diplomats in Cuba, according to American sources.

                              Isn't it more likely they were exposed to some pathogen or poison?

                                Hard to say, apparently staring at your cell phone damages your brain, so... Maybe they were just given phones?
