You have heard of it raining cats and dogs, but have you ever heard of it raining fish?
Residents along the Texarkana, Texas reported small fish falling from the sky last week as the area saw strong winds.
The phenomenon can be explained by powerful waterspouts, a column of rotating, cloud-filled wind along a water’s surface. If these spouts become powerful enough, they can carry small objects up in the air, and as we all know, what goes up, must come down.
Residents of Texarkana were by most accounts unfazed by the event, with one person saying they grabbed a bucket and started collecting the little fish to use as bait for a future fishing trip.
