What Is That Smell? Foul Stench Sweeps Across Southland
Description:Authorities are trying to determine what's behind a sulfur or rotten eggs smell in the air across much of the Southland.
The Los Angeles Fire Department has received hundreds of phone calls -- including some to 911 -- about the odor, which has been reported from the Palm Springs area to Simi Valley.
The source of the smell is most likely the Salton Sea, said Chief Julie Hutchinson, spokeswoman for the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.(0:54)
