Mysterious White Dust Blankets Parts of West Virginia, Virginia, and Maryland with chemical odor

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

Embattled Americans are on edge after a series of escalating events this winter, including watching the advancing of a spy balloon from the Chinese Communist Party, the subsequent shooting down of numerous other balloons, the train derailment in Ohio that resulted in a toxic explosion from which the people are still suffering and other strange incidents which make some people feel like they are under attack.

Then early in January, there were massive airline disruptions from cyber issues, elevated talks of going to war around the world, and a total breakdown of our national security at the US Border, leaving many Americans feeling unsafe and worried.

And those issues unfolded after two solid years of dismay and concerns over COVID mismanagement, rising prices, a breakdown in the supply chain, financial dilemmas, and international conflicts, where Joe Biden and his administration’s response to the American people has been a disaster.

And on Thursday, to add to their worries, there were reports of another odd occurrence in numerous states:

“Parts of West Virginia and Maryland were blanketed with a mysterious fine white dust late Thursday evening and into early Friday morning,” Cassandra MacDonald reported for Gateway Pundit, adding:

“The Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia appeared to be hit the hardest, but there were also photos and videos being posted from as far as Winchester, Virginia, and Hagerstown, Maryland.”

“#BREAKING “white dust” falling out of the sky event in Maryland and West Virginia.
Residents described it as a “fine ash feel
Reports from Allegany County, Maryland, WV and Pennsylvania.”

Some people were concerned about the mysterious substance being dropped from planes, as reported on social media:

Reports of a “small plane dropping white powder so thick we couldn’t see our neighbor’s house.” in the #WestVirginia #Maryland area. Multiple reports with pictures of cars coated in white dust particles. ➡️⬅️ #chemtrails #conspiracy #conspiracytheory

MacDonald, who is a West Virginia resident, reported on the occurrence and about her exchanges with neighbors:

On Friday, NBC News in Connecticut reported:

Social media was flooded with posts Friday morning from people complaining about a weird smell in the air and residue on their vehicles from rain that fell Thursday night and into Friday.

NBC Connecticut has also received questions and photos of the residue from several viewers.

What is causing it? It’s not entirely clear.

Some have speculated that it could be chemicals from the train derailment in Ohio earlier this month. However, NBC Connecticut meteorologists aren’t sure that could be the case since the fire, and chemical release from that derailment happened two weeks ago.

NBC Connecticut Chief Meteorologist says it’s possible the residue is from dust kicked up from a dust storm in the Plains a few days ago. He says he smelled a chlorine-like odor in West Hartford Friday morning, but he doesn’t have an explanation for that.

The Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP)  issued a statement Friday that said the agency has been monitoring potential air quality impacts since the derailment and the burn-off of the hazardous chemicals in Ohio. So far, they have not seen any impacts to Connecticut from the incident.

The DEEP says they have not been able to determine what is causing the residue on people’s vehicles. The agency did originally forecast “good” air quality for Friday, monitor readings today show a moderate amount of fine particulate matter in the air. When there is a moderate reading, the DEEP suggests unusually sensitive people reduce prolonged exertion.

The cold front moving through the state today is expected to return the air quality to “good,” according to the DEEP.

Last week, the DEEP was eager to denounce environmental changes were due to the OH toxic explosion, according to local CT news, 12- who reported:

“Along with the dusting, some said there was an odor that was similar to chlorine.
Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection says it has not seen any evidence that the Feb. 3 Ohio train derailment has had any impact on air quality in Connecticut”.
“DEEP says based on an analysis of wind trajectories from the site of the derailment, it does not believe that to be the cause of the “soot.” The agency says it is aware of local reports regarding “sooty” matter on parked cars but has not been able to determine any singular source, such as a forest fire, power plant or transportation-related emissions.
DEEP says air flows over the past day have followed the I-95 corridor into Connecticut.
One Connecticut resident wondered if there was a link between the odor and the residue, and the incident in Ohio, so he decided to test the pH level of the residue from his car, which had a pH level of 10.5.
“pH 10 is pretty high, so it would not be dissimilar to an ash produced in your fireplace,” said Dan May, a biology and environment sciences professor.
