Several residents in east Texas have reported seeing fish all over the ground after they apparently fell from the sky during a rainstorm on Wednesday.
According to The City of Texarkana, animal rain happens when small water animals like fish, frogs and crabs are swept up in waterspouts or drafts that happen on the surface.
Then, those small animals fall back to the ground with the rain.
The city of Texarkana said in a Facebook post that it was indeed “raining fish”.
“Animal rain is a phenomenon that occurs when small water animals like frogs, crabs, and small fish are swept up in waterspouts or drafts that occur on the surface of the earth. They are then rained down at the same time as the rain,” the city’s Facebook post said.
