Matt Hartman of Eagle Rock has noticed a foul odor this morning outside his home. Apparently he is not alone. L.A. Now reports that hundreds of people have called the Los Angeles Fire Department to complain about a rotten egg or sulfur like odor this morning. “It smells like the stink cloud that’s moving thru L.A. has reached Eagle Rock,” said Hartman via email.
Where is it coming from? No one seems for sure but the stink has been detected from Simi Valley to Palm Springs. Hold your nose, Highland Park. You might be next.
* Update: Officials are now blaming the stench on a fish die-off in the Salton Sea.
