Last week, several states along the East Coast of the Mid-Atlantic region were startled to find a mysterious dust-like powder falling from the skies above.
On Thursday, residents in Maryland, northern Virginia and West Virginia alerted authorities when they noticed a mysterious powder accumulating on their vehicles.
Due to an overwhelming number of accounts, the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection elected to undertake its own inquiry into the matter.
The primary purpose of this research was to assess whether the powder may have been dust from storms in Texas and New Mexico that had then moved eastward into Ohio, Michigan and Kentucky.

Despite this popular explanation, some remain unconvinced and suggest the powder could have been released from a train derailment of toxic chemicals in Eastern Ohio or even dropped by an overhead airplane.

Authorities have discredited these assertions, giving rise to an abundance of conspiracy theories on social media and inciting a demand for real, verifiable answers.
