We’ve had 100’s of Earthquakes over the last week in southern California near the Salton Sea. Now we have reports of the water level dropping in the Salton Sea along with geysers appearing, mud pots, a massive fish die off and multiple sulfur odor reports that were over a hundred miles away.

The sulfur smell coming from the Salton Sea area is so strong that the public in Los Angles was calling 911 today thinking that they had a natural gas pipeline break. It’s starting to look like what happened in the movie 2012 with John Cusack.

LA Times Report


At its deepest points, the Salton Sea is only about 50 feet, said Andrew Schlange, general manager of the Salton Sea Authority. The 360-square-mile body of murky, highly saline water is also receding into the desert. More water is evaporating from the sea than is flowing in from agricultural runoff. In some places the falling waterline has uncovered thermal fields studded with features like geysers and boiling mud pots spewing clouds of steam and sulfur dioxide gas that smells like rotten eggs.


I don’t believe this strong sulfur smell is just from the dead fish alone for it to travel over 100 miles away and they should also be considering the massive amount of earthquakes that have been centered near the Salton Sea over the last 2 weeks. Add in the new geysers and mud pots starting to surface and there might be a much bigger problem just starting.

Can you post the latest earthquake activity from the same source? It would be interesting to see if the quakes are building in intensity.

Yeah, I knew I wasn't the only one not falling for that claim about yesterday's stench being the result of an annual fish die-off. I've lived in California most of my life and I've never heard of or smelled something quite like this before and stretching over such a large area. I wonder if it is a sign of a coming quake. We are due for another big one.

I don't know, but if it's sulphur, and now geysers, I think I want someone testing the acidity of that water!
Things could get pretty interesting!

Possibly this will be a little more interesting than just a quake. Sulfur odors are more like a signature of an impending volcanic eruption although this may be just increased activity in venting gases. Combined with lots of small quakes though, it seems a bit worrisome. That general area has a history of explosive eruptions and is obviously still active.

I grew up in southern California and NEVER NEVER EVER smelled anything like that in over the 20 years that I lived there!!!!!

Just to add my experience... I live in a suburb 10 minutes from Los Angeles. We are on septic tanks here, rather than sewers. The smell, which I've smelled in various places, including my home, all over town is EXACTLY like my neighbor's septic tank overflowing. I've been smelling it for the last few days. Gross. My husband works nights in Hollywood, and he was smelling it all last night, which is the first time he's smelled it outside of our town.

You in La Canada? Just a guess. I am thinking earth movement or, now that you say it smell like septic, wonder if the sewers are not working properly. L.A.'s plumbing is pretty old now.

sulfuric geysers sounds like the start of something very very bad.

Yup, I suspect something volcanic is going on. Wonder exactly what? Hope there isn't some kind of eruption there soon.

The dead fish smell is so bogus it's comedic. When I stepped out on break around 9:30 am yesterday the smell was so thick I knew it wasn't ordinary and my first thought was sulfer. I believe this is something volcanic and the reason is because it's in our sewer systems. I drive by a street that has a bad, garbage smelling gutter. Last night after the day time sulfer smell wore off that gutter was as strong as ever and with the sulfer smell. It's under us. I wonder how the tar pits are doing???

You mean smells like the S*** has hit the fan already.


Any conspiracies on super volcanoes under LA?

Sodom and Gomorrah anyone?

Some info I found re: major quakes and foul smells:

Eye-witness Accounts of Several Major Earthquakes

Thomas Gold - 1987

trilogymedia.com.au...

One more:

Sulfur smells were reported in the region quite awhile before the first quake in 1811. However, since the sulfur smells have now been reported for quite awhile in the current time, and since the reports of sulfur smells increased before the recent earthquake in Missouri - this would seem to imply that a quake is near. With the recent Missouri quake perhaps even being a fore quake

I just moved from So Ca, my families still there.

Ive been getting the Rotten egg smell reports from them in Perris Ca, they are fairly near the Brawley swarm that happened last week.

They where going to fly up to see my new home, I am now thinking of pushing that forward a bit and having them stay for a little bit.

I bet the Salton Sea is actually the top of a massive Super Volcano and all that sulfer (rotten eggs) is a warning that the Gates of Hell are opening and California has front row seats to a deadly concoction of lava and earthquakes!

Oh. My. God! Get the hell outta there! Warn everyone you can! Tell everyone NOT to ignore the signs!
Sulfer is the smell of Hell... A cataclysm is coming to California and Hell is coming with it!
Get away from Cali!

Well, I posted a new thread a few weeks back about the earthquake swarms here. The swarms seem to be happening more and more the past few weeks. Its all over the news here about the sulfur smell. I kept smelling something strange yesterday and thought my dog had an accident in the house. I looked high and low, nothing. Then I saw the reports on the news this morning. Hmm the Salton Sea is not in my back yard...I don't know but if you can smell that smell from over a hundred miles away that is scary. I think the smell may actually be coming up from the faults like the earth is releasing gas(LOL no pun intended) I cant see the massive fish die off being smelled this far away....I don't know....Perhaps we are in for a big quake. I don't remember an odor ever being present in any reports before a big one though. There is a first for everything though.

USGS Volcano Hazards Program lists the Salton Buttes as a Major West Coast Volcano with a potential eruption hazard.






The Salton Buttes lie within the Salton Sea Geothermal Field located about 145 km (90 mi) southeast of Palm Springs in Imperial Valley, California. The geothermal system is fueled by heat emanating from zones of partially molten rock (magma) deep below the Earth’s surface. Eruptions occurring about 400,000 years ago were followed by a long lull in volcanic activity until about 18,000 years ago. The most recent eruptions, which took place about 9,000 years ago, started explosively, then progressed to relatively gentle effusion of dense, glassy-looking (obsidian) lava domes. The Salton Sea Geothermal Field, which currently produces enough power to supply about 325,000 homes, has persistent small to moderate earthquakes related to the geothermal system and to movement along regional faults.
