I know that when I was on the road on I77NB there was a big cloud with very bad odor and it made me gag and about puke. even with the blowers and fans turned off in the car we still smelled it. it was a blueish haze....

my mom saw the same thing around charleston,wv.... not too far from where we saw this one... I've been extra itchy since and this was monday. even showered twice since then. also my throat is extra sore and I can't stomach a lot of food. I may get checked out soon. if it gets worse imma go to the ER.

There was just a pop sound and the workers saw white stuff in air. It was confirmed no explosion, no blast, and people and air inside tested fine, therre wasnt even alot of white stuff.


No idea what remix is talking about as I77 is on the other side of the state, same with Charleston

You've only showered twice since Monday? Maybe that's the issue.

perhaps someone was shipping flour or some other white powder in a back that erupted :p could be a simple thing and have nothing at all to do with an attack who knows.

Powder was probably the phosphor lining the glass of the bulb.

[quote]A reported exploding package and spray of white powder that sent emergency units rushing to a small-town post office turned out to be just the pop of a malfunctioning fluorescent light bulb, authorities said Friday.[/quote]
You'd think any normal person would know the difference between an exploding light bulb and an exploding package. Maybe normal is the key word here.

<another postal person>Hmm, seems it was that light bulb over there.
<postal person>Hmm, yea does seem dark and there is broken glass over there too.
<another postal person>Hey, want to get out of work for awhile? Let's say it was an explosion.
