What’s going on at Shell? Major sulfur odor!

12/4/14  at  22:14

Giant plumes of smoke/steam/??? that can be seen from Alhambra High School. The pictures with the wide view were taken from Waterbird Park.

At least 5 calls to the BAAQMD hotline from different individuals but the inspector on duty has chosen not to come to Martinez.

Intense sulfur smell surrounds the refinery…it gave me a killer headache. Hey, wait a minute, steam doesn’t smell like rotten eggs!

There was also a mention of an explosion heard earlier in the evening but there is no proof that it was related.

UPDATE: Still spewing plumes, still sulfur smell at 8:15 AM 12/5/14
No morning callback from BAAQMD
