A substance described as "white stuff" and "milky rain" is covering parts of Washington and Oregon states, but its origin is a mystery.
"We have received reports of 'white stuff' on vehicles. The ash is more than likely from the Volcano Shiveluch," Washington state's Walla Walla County Emergency officials said in statement.
The volcano, located on the Kamchatka peninsula in extreme northeast Russia, "spewed an ash plume to about the 20,000-foot level in late January," the agency says. "It has been deposited in a widespread area, including Washington and Oregon."
"While the substance is likely ash is from Volcano Shiveluch, they are a number of volcanoes that are currently active," they say. "The source of the material has not been scientifically confirmed."
And the ash may be from another part of the world.
"The strong southerly flow from the jet stream could have brought it from an active volcano in southwest Colima, Mexico. But if we go farther west towards eastern Russia, there's another active volcano there," says CNN Meteorologist Derek Van Dam. The Mexican volcano is near Guadalajara and erupted Wednesday.
The distances between the volcanoes and the Washington/Oregon areas are staggering -- the Russian volcano is 4,000 miles away and the volcano in Mexico is more than 2,000 miles away.

Yes I believe we would be looking at a planetary ELE if lets say the Yellowstone Caldera blew.. I HOPE we never find out!
It's sort of funny to me, how there is such an increase in major eruptions and methane leaks these days.
