VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - WAVY.com wants to help ease concerns about potentially sickening
drywall in local homes.
Last month, we learned a local company, Venture, Inc., bought
tons of drywall from China.
Some companies ended up using the drywall to build homes in
Chesapeake and Virginia Beach.Several people have complained of a
rotten egg smell, possibly from a sulfur-based gas in the drywall.
Now, the city of Virginia Beach has set up a website where
people can find out more information and get answers.

Virginia Department of Health recommends that you first contact
your homes builder.
