METHANE IS ODOURLESS.
What you smell when you turn on your gas is additives to allow detection.
3.8 just occurred in Cali though.

Yes, it's not acceptable. The statement is extremely vague, "naturally occurring condition from the ocean"
Red tide causing complete evacuation of a library?
Dunno --- can anyone find similar stories where algae has caused any of these symptoms? Specifically this black oil substance, that'd be great.

Do fault lines emit gas before a quake? Or the movement causing underground gases to be released?

first.... if it was a natural occurrence why didn't they just say "due to algae blooms" or "due to decaying kelp"???? why were they so vague??
red tide ALWAYS comes with a warning. it doesn't just happen out of nowhere and warnings are issued to stay off the beach. i've been near the beach during red tide and didn't smell much. it did make me cough but there wasn't an overwhelming smell of "gas".
something is odd about this story.
edit to add: you don't go from smelling nothing to being overwhelmed in 10 minutes INSIDE a building due to normal occurrences.edit on 25-7-2012 by pasiphae because: (no reason given)
