Similar problem w/ odors after rainfall

After the first big rainfall of the season (like today for example) I get a gassy/musty smell coming up from the crawl space underneath my California ranch house. Its not rotten-eggy, however -- maybe mildewy. My theory: The moisture-soaked soil around and under the house forces up pockets of natural gas? I get a few puddles underneath the house after it rains -- rising water table? I just worry if the gas is harmful...
