Hmmm...

Thread: West coast weird odors smells sulfur on the wind explination finally?

ETA: The smell here in La. isn't so much a sulphuric smell as an acrid/acidic smell. It's more of a sensation in the nostrils than an actual smell.

Ok I remember a thread on here about a strong sulfer smell before the east coast earthquake. So maybe there is a connection and everyone should stay alert.

Re: Thick, Sulfur-smelling FOG outside.. as far as eye can see.. what is it?
Like I said, I've seen fog all my life and never smelled it... I'm not doubting that others have smelled it before, I just think it is odd and suspicious, especially when the only thing that would make FOG smell like SULFUR is emissions from burning fossil fuels, such as coal or crude oil. Apparently, this also happens as a precursor to volcanic activity. If anyone is interested, here's what I gathered.

[link to www.nctcog.org]

"Sulfur Dioxide

What is it?
Sulfur dioxide (SO2) is a gas that is prevalent in crude oil, coal, and ore that contains common metals like aluminum, copper, zinc, lead and iron.

Where does it come from?
SO2 is formed when fuel-containing sulfur is burned and when gasoline is extracted from oil, or when metals are extracted from ore. Once it is released into the atmosphere, SO2 dissolves in water vapor to form acid (acid rain).

The majority of SO2 released into the atmosphere comes from coal burning power plants. Other sources of this pollutant are petroleum refineries, cement manufacturing, and metal processing facilities. Also, locomotives, large ships, and some non-road diesel equipment currently burn high sulfur fuel and release SO2 emissions to the air in large quantities.

How is it harmful?
Many of the potential dangers resulting from the release of SO2 in the air are directly related to how it reacts with other materials. One danger is the formation of acid rain, which can damage plant and animal life as well as damage buildings and monuments. SO2 also causes potential human health respiratory and cardiovascular problems for people who have heart or lung disease or asthma."


[link to en.wikipedia.org]

"Sulfur dioxide (also sulphur dioxide) is the chemical compound with the formula SO2. It is released by volcanoes and in various industrial processes. Since coal and petroleum often contain sulfur compounds, their combustion generates sulfur dioxide unless the sulfur compounds are removed before burning the fuel. Further oxidation of SO2, usually in the presence of a catalyst such as NO2, forms H2SO4, and thus acid rain.[2] Sulfur dioxide emissions are also a precursor to particulates in the atmosphere. Both of these impacts are cause for concern over the environmental impact of these fuels."

Also, notable is the reddish-orangish color of it and how it hits you in the face when you walk out the door.. can't even see across the street hardly.
wtf

I think geological activity in the ground could cause release of sulfur as in EQ(New Madrid) or volcano. Any kind of crustal breaks in the earths crust like drilling or fracking could aid the release.

We're smelling it in central Indiana tonight. I've never smelled sulphur outside unless there are fireworks.

rotten egg water ... very pungent
 Quoting: Mr. Toppit


Ya, something the O.P. , may consider is a natural gas leak ..

that , and it could just be foggy outside ...


One day I was visiting my grandmother, and when I got out of my car it smelled like sulfur/rotten eggs sort of smell ...

I called the gas company and they came right out with their handheld detector and found the problem.

Turns out, she used to have one of those gas driveway lamps that had been out of use for quite many years; and a pipe coming off of where it used to hook up to the lamp, had corroded ..


It is something you should take seriously and consider , if you are indeed smelling that ..




Also,I have heard that sometimes sulfur smell around faultline areas , are a precursor to earthquakes .. Same with volcanos.
