A pungent odor invaded a local community, forcing many concerned residents to call 911. The smell was gone by Tuesday night, but it lingered over Lorain for several hours Tuesday morning.
"I smell gas down here on West 21st Street and I don't know where it's coming from, but it's pretty strong down here," said one 911 caller.
"I got a strong odor of gas in my apartment, it just woke me out of my sleep," said another.
Lorain firefighters responded to calls from all over the city between 5 a.m. 9 a.m. Tuesday. The complaints are all the same.
"It's a real, real strong propane smell," said another 911 caller.
"It just smelled like gas, it was a really bad smell, and everything, and I smelled it all the way from my house, all the way up to the high school and everything," said Lorain resident Samantha Haupt.

However, knowing that natural gas is odorless, I've yet to come up with a suitable solution for the smell in your OP. Hmm, need to do a bit more research, I suppose.

Still waiting to find out the cause of it. With it being just over 200 miles away, I doubt there's any connection, but thought I'd share since this is gas related and just happened.
