Mysterious rotten-egg smell in San Francisco

Heads up. That rotten egg smell is sulfur.  I suspect its coming from geothermal activity.

 

For the second night in a row, citizens reported a rotten-egg-like funk wafting through San Francisco, the source of which remains a mystery.

Crews from Pacific Gas and Electric Co. responded to 15 calls about the bizarre smell between 11 p.m. and 1 a.m. Thursday, said J.D. Guidi, a spokesman for the utility.

Those reports came after PG&E got 54 calls starting at 2 a.m. Wednesday about what citizens reported as the smell of gas in neighborhoods throughout the city.

But in all the cases, PG&E inspectors found no leaks and no trace of natural gas in the air.

Pelosi streaking again? Or too many homos pull out at the same time? Don't they know those fumes cause global warming?

Yes, all over Twitter, too!

"It did not come from a gas leak.

It did not come from the refinery.

It did not come from the sewer system.

But it came from somewhere. Around 2 a.m. on Wednesday morning, residents of San Francisco started calling the city’s gas company and fire department to report a terrible smell. It was one of those rotten eggy, sulfurous smells that often indicate a gas leak."

Couple that with all the abnormally high geological activity, man.. Wake up and smell the egg's people.

Yeah the warning signs are everywhere lately for a big EQ. I wonder how people's pets are reacting? They're usually the first to know when something goes down.

Hmmmm. Coincidence?  Maybe ...  

Seems it's not just San Fran. Five days ago in Philly/NJ, 12/24/16:

 

Rotten Egg Smell Blankets Philadelphia Area

http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/rotten-egg-smell-blankets-philadelphia-area-44380791

 

And in Columbus, Ohio -- 12/20/16

 

"Why does Columbus smell? City, Columbia Gas are looking into it"

"The description varied: Rotten eggs. Raw sewage. Paper mill."

 

http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/local/2016/12/20/gas-odor-reports.html

 

And Santa Barbara County -- 10/10/16

"information about the odor's source “beyond upsetting,” and others worried the odor was an indication of harmful chemicals, such as hydrogen sulfide, which puts off a rotten-egg sulfuric smell. 

It turns out they were right — on Monday afternoon, county officials attributed the smell to a hydrogen sulfide release and said they were still working to find the source."

Yeah, we'd better put all our willies back up each others bottoms !

 

But um, no....sulpher is bad news. Not sure if this is actually that, as i'd thought it's a killer, as in you smell it for a breath or 2 and then it goes odorless and kills you.  Anyone seen that jumpingjackflash website? that's all about a mass sulpher kill off event. (combined with other fun and games)

Sulfur smell from an approaching earthquake maybe out at sea and off the coast. Maybe volcanic.
