Party Cloudy and a Chance of Fish


Share

Al Roker didn’t predict this one. It was a typical Wednesday afternoon, just a bit stormy is all, in Texarkana, TX. It had been raining, but now mixed in the rain, and look to the sky and it wasn’t sleet and certainly not snow, and it wasn’t Superman either – it was fish.

Fish were falling from the sky, and they’d hit the pavement with a “splat.”

Raining fish is believed to be the result of a rare meteorological phenomenon in which a water spout moving over water sucks up small creatures such as fish and frogs, carrying them along until they lose steam before dropping them.  Similar incidents have been reported in which frogs and toads have also been seen falling from the sky.

In 2017, it was raining fish over an elementary school in California.
