*SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- *A home in Sacramento's south Natomas
neighborhood is surrounded by sheet metal, and neighbors are calling it
an eyesore.The D'Souza family lives in the home on Timberwood Court, and
claims the aluminium pieces are necessary to protect them from unknown
neighbors who have been bombarding them with radio waves and making them
"(It's) a shield to protect against radiation, because microwave
radiation is reflected off of aluminium, so it's a protective measure,"
resident Sarah D'Souza said.
The D'Souzas said the bombardment began after the first anniversary of
the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, and that the radio waves have
caused them health problems ranging from headaches to lupus.Sacramento
Code Enforcement officials have gotten involved and ordered the family
to remove the metal by Monday or face a misdemeanor citation."Eleven
years in Sacramento and few other years in Southern California and this
is the first time I've ever seen (anything like this). The inside of the
house is also covered with foil and the beds are covered with a
foil-like material as well," Sacramento Code Enforcement spokesman Josh
Pino said.The D'Souzas said they will comply with the order and remove
the sheet metal, but they also plan to gather evidence to show city
officials what they believe is a problem with radiation.
