I noticed a foul odor throughout the apartment when my room door opened. I decided to stick my head out of the window and the smell is even worse. It didn't smell 4-5 hours ago, seems to be recent. I live between the Upper and Lower New York Bay's, a few New York blocks up from the pier, but I don't see how the smell could just suddenly travel to my apartment and get through the cracks in the windows to stink up the apartment. Never smelled this bad. Could it be a gas leak? I'm clueless as to what to do and who to contact, it's 3 in the morning so I can't bother anyone else in my building to see if they notice the smell. Could be nothing, or could be something... Thanks in advance.

Just wait till tomorrow, it shouldn't be something bad, hopefully it is not a gas leak.

My girl said she smelled this outside our house in Southern Maine yesterday.

Yes it could be a gas leak. The smell is put in the gas so that people will evacuate before the concentration of gas builds up to explosive levels. Get out of your apartment until you confirm the source of the smell.

A rotten egg smell would usually indicate sulphur. I suppose it could be a gas leak, natural gas doesn't have an odour. Here in the UK they inject scent into it so its easily detectable, it doesn't smell like rotten eggs though?

I have no way of i dentifying the cause of the smell myself, I would've if I was able to.

Don't mean to be offensive in any way but some psychiatric disorders manifest themselves through victim smelling unpleasant odors, rotten eggs included. You can Google it.

Everyone else in my apartment smells it. Phsychiatric disorders are irrelevant.

Could be hydrogen sulphide gas (H2S) eminating from the sewers. Its produced when things decay, there's probably a lot down there after sandy swept through town lately.

It's urgent because I want to be safe if it happens to be something serious. I have no way of personally finding out what it could be because I don't have access to either the basement or back of the building. If you're not going to contribute I don't see why you feel the need to post.

If I were you I'd be very cautious and perhaps move away from the smell.

10th Nov - Indianapolis explosion kills two and leads to evacuation of 200 people (gas leak?)

23rd Nov - Another Gas Explosion, This Time It Was Caught on Video (gas leak)

23rd Nov - 14 killed, 47 injured in China restaurant blast (gas leak)

If you wanted to be safe you would not be sitting in your apartment typing a thread on ATS.

You would be knocking on your neighbors doors asking them if they smelled the same thing, and evacuating them along with your self.

What you are doing is playing a victim to garner attention.

In its normal state, natural gas is odorless. For easy detection, NW Natural injects an odorant called mercaptan into the gas before it is inserted into the distribution system. Mercaptan gives off a foul smell, reminiscent of rotten eggs or sulfur.

Any odor of natural gas inside your home or business may indicate a leak. If you SMELL rotten eggs, leave the area or GO and LET US KNOW by calling 800-882-3377.

Learn what to do if you detect a rotten egg or sulfur odor.

If I was you I'd phone the fire dept, non-emergency police number or the local gas comany and discuss it with them. Better safe than sorry, right? If it's nothing to worry about they'll tell you that and you can quit worrying about it.

Move well away from the area where you can smell the smell and call 9-1-1 or the Power Company to come and investigate.

Or risk becoming toast. Whatever seems better to you

Change in tune as soon as someone poses a very relevant idea.

So it's 3am and you don't want to bother anyone to Everyone knows...

good thing you came to ATS to ask...
