Our Ocean has Gas!
There have been a flurry of reports online, and on the NextDoor network, in recent days regarding concerns about smelling gas in my area of Carlsbad and also in Oceanside. And no doubt numerous calls to San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E) and the police.
Naturally, the first thought people have is of a gas leak somewhere nearby, which of course raises concerns about a potential explosion. It happens!
It turns out the problem is not a natural gas leak the utility company needs to deal with - the fault is our gassy Pacific Ocean.
They call it outgassing. I can think of other terms but we’ll leave it at that!
Time to break out the Gas-X!
They don’t seem to know exactly what is causing the ocean to emit this smell, although one suggestion I saw was the rotting vegetation due to record high ocean temps.
But they say it’s non-toxic, and it’s happened before.
This was a new one for me. It’s been all over the news and police departments have been busy responding to reports as well and reassuring residents.
Just one other thing to be aware of living by the sea! I wonder if this will be a new disclosure?!
