Black helicopters and a strange hum!?

It was in the middle of the night, early Sunday morning. I am not sure what the exact time was because I currently do not have a clock in my bedroom on hand... I felt it must've been some time between 1-3 A.M. I had my window open all night since the weather was warm earlier that day. For some strange reason, I woke up out of a sound sleep and seconds later I heard what sounded like a small airplane buzzing in the distance and it was getting closer. After a moment the sound grew louder and louder and I recognized that it was the sound of helicopters, maybe two or three. These helicopters then began to fly EXTREMELY low over and through the tree tops of our quiet wooded neighborhood. I knew that by this time, all of the neighbors were probably awaken by this event. The helicopters, for ten minutes circled low, several times as if looking for something. They were low, but circled a wide perimeter of the forest and I could not see them. It was the last couple of minutes, one of the helicopters finally circled in closer. I saw a black helicopter with a very bright searchlight and with bright blue and red lights underneath. I did not see the other two, but I know there was more than one. I'm not sure if they were King County Police or military!? After ten minutes, they flew away in the southwest direction. It was right after they left, I heard a strange low hum outside in the area that lasted for a few minutes and faded. In the morning, I asked my family, who also had their windows open, if they woke up and heard this terribly loud event and they said, "No," and that they were all fast asleep. Something was strange about this. These helicopters were frantically chasing and looking for something in these woods.
