See I told ya so. I bet this has to do with that Foul Smell everyone is talking about!
Geological Survey questions about a potential volcanic eruption in Imperial Valley that could bring clouds of ash to San Diego County.
“Most definitely Volcanic activity is possible,” said geologist Pat Abbott.
Abbott was part of a research group that collected footage of muddy pits and volcanic gasses about 100 miles east on the southern end of the Salton Sea.
Reports of Foul Sulfur or rotten eggs smell over CA also now in VA.
My own conclusion is a Volcanic or earthquake.. Can a Volcanic Eruption Occur in Los Angeles?
Yes Volcanoes are located where there is a source of magma. Lots of times this is at plate boundaries and that’s also where there are lots of faults and earthquakes. The San Andreas Fault is a place where two plates are sliding PAST one another, so there are lots of faults and earthquakes. One of the main places where rock is melted is where one plate slides UNDER another. That happens further north in the Cascades of Washington, Oregon, and northern California and that’s why they have some active volcanoes (like Mount St. Helens) there. Los Angeles and southern California may have a lot of potential for earthquakes, but are probably safe from volcanoes for a while.

Smell of Sulfar or Rotten Eggs
Volcano smell like rotten eggs or sulpher..
On Monday, the smell was detected across a 150-mile swath of Southern California.
Was it from an industrial facility? Wastewater plant? An earthquake that shook the ground beneath the Salton Sea, which is about 100 miles southeast of San Bernardino?
AQMD field inspectors also conducted “odor surveillance” in the Coachella Valley and across the agency’s four-county jurisdiction, according to the AQMD.
