Literally s***ty weather: Entire Kansas city suffocating from outhouse odor after wind brings rural life experience
What news reports called a rare weather event started late on Wednesday, when the city got engulfed in a mass of air that basically smelled like excrement.
The nasty odor persisted in the city on Thursday as well, prompting a few residents to sound alarm over the situation. So many people called 911 that the Kansas City police issued a special notice, urging the population to stop complaining.
Local media was repeatedly alerted by the citizens too.
There were those who thought it was their own fault, believing they had stepped into something.
This is hilarious. I went for a walk tonight and thought I stepped in dog shit. Now I know...— B Clem (@B_D_Clem3) November 7, 2019
Many, however, simply joked about the smelly situation.
While at the same time coming up with wild theories over its real origin.
Yes! Told my coworker that it smelled like horses crapped in the street. Now I know why!— Robert Stephen Tonchuk (@RobertTonchuk) November 7, 2019
The US National Weather Service has had to weigh in onto the stinky scare, explaining that the smell was brought by really unfortunate weather circumstances. A cold front picked up a batch of air from the farmland to the north of the city and brought it to urban area, while also preventing it from dissipating into the higher layers of the atmosphere.
