Many Texarkana residents were surprised when they saw fish dropping from the sky along with rain.
While reporting about the weird meteorological phenomenon, the official Facebook page of The City of Texarkana, Texas, posted a picture of the fish along with an explanation of the phenomenon.
While they just joked on how 2021 has played tricks with them, further elaborating, they explained about the Animal rain too. They wrote, “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. While it’s uncommon, it happens, as evidenced in several places in Texarkana today.”
The Facebook post was widely shared by many netizens. The post went so viral that it has now gained thousands of shares and hundreds of comments.
Many residents of Texarkana took to social media in order to document the dead fish lying on roads and in their backyards. Some people were amused. One person commented, “There are probably a lot of happy stray cats”, on one such post, while another said, “People thought I was crazy about 20 years ago when I told them it rained frogs at my hog farm. I stood there dumbfounded looking at my concrete walkways being covered as they were falling. I was wondering if the world was coming to an end.”
However, some people are worried about the health and hygiene issues that dead aquatic animals might cause if clean-up operations are not done on time.
“Animal rain” has previously been reported in places like California and northwestern Serbia.
