Intrigued citizens sent us images and videos taken in different places in Algiers, showing a strange yellowish substance that accompanied the rain that has hit Algiers in recent days.
These citizens do not understand that nobody has noticed this unexplained phenomenon, especially since this substance, which seems to resemble sulfur, but which did not emit any odor, was seen everywhere.
Is it a chemical released by a factory near the capital or is it just sand? In some places, the rainwater dried, but the indelible traces of this material remained, especially in the channels and potholes.
No official authority has reported the presence of hazardous substances and citizens who have addressed our site have expressed their surprise without fearing any adverse effect of this unusual component.
