Can it Rain Fish?
Fish rain from the sky? Tornadoes are the main culprits.
What causes Animals to Rain from the Sky?
Tornadoes are twirling whirlwinds. When these tornadoes over a water body like lakes or seas; they develop into waterspouts and suck almost everything that is inside the water – it can be fish, eels or frogs.
The fish are sucked up by the tornado’s vortex and then blown around in the clouds. The clouds are capable of carrying them to long distances until the wind speed decreases and then they fall back on the ground. They can fall miles away from the place where they might have been picked up.
Animals that have fallen from Sky!
- All sorts of creatures fall from the sky about forty times in a year!
- Not only fish but creatures like snakes, worms, squids, crabs and even alligators have also been reported to have fallen from the sky! The most common are fish and frogs.
- Many a time these creatures are picked up and swept high in the clouds; they become encased or trapped in ice or hail. Encased creatures in ice, when fall from the sky can be very dangerous and can smash through cars and glass.
