Siberian scare: Smelly, green snow

‘Russian emergency workers have flown to a Siberian region where smelly, orange-, yellow- and green-colored snow fell earlier this week covering about a 40 square miles, officials said Friday.

The Emergency Situations Ministry said that officials in the Omsk region, about 1,400 miles east of Moscow, had warned local residents not use the snow for drinking or other purposes, and to keep domestic animals from it.

The ministry said the snow, which fell Wednesday afternoon, was yellow, green and orange and had an oily texture and unpleasant smell.’
