People who have spent time today in the Lomita area today might have wondered what the heck that awful smell was. As a matter of fact, Lomita stinks. Reports have been flooding into the 911 center today in Torrance about a "sulfur" or "rotten egg" smell; even the cops could smell it at their Department, according to South Bay Crimes & Courts. Using their noses, along with their noggins, the source of the stench was sniffed out: "There is an open large sewer pipe at 250th Street and Western Avenue in the city of Lomita. Los Angeles County Public Works will be handling the situation." And, exhale.
