Piles of foam engulf Moroccan countryside


Posted on Monday, 8 February, 2016 | Comment icon 20 comments

Locals in the Doukkala region were left baffled after the area became covered in mounds of suds.
The peculiar phenomenon, which some have likened to 'clouds falling from the sky', ended up going viral after video footage of the bizarre scene was uploaded online.

The person who recorded the video insisted that he had never seen anything like it before.

The strange spectacle has since divided opinions on social media with Internet users suggesting a number of possible explanations including the idea that the foam may have been produced by an industrial spillage of cleaning soap or by some sort of chemicals dumped from an airplane.

Others have also suggested it could be foam from the sea or some sort of sewer spillage.

It's caused by pollution and in India's case it's untreated sewage. http://www.dogonews.com/2015/11/5/severe-pollution-causes-indias-bellandur-lake-to-spew-toxic-white-foam

. it looks like Soap to me I dont think so. At 2:10 into the vid the guy is squezzing that stuff and it makes some "crispy noises" and but soap foam does not make that kind of noises (at least not where I`m living). These bubbles are Marshmallow Man farts. 100% sure.

After looking again I'm pretty convinced this could be sewage that's been churned up by ocean waves. yuck.
