Default It's Raining... What!?? fish... and other things






Grab a coffee and have a seat by the fire while we explore ...strange things raining down from the sky

It was about a month ago today, and there was a huge downpour of rain. I spoke with a loved one that day who told me a story about some worms that she thought had come down with the rain and landed on her porch. She's not sure they did, but she said she had the sense that they might have rained down from the sky, just as her mate did.

It was pouring down rain and she'd opened her door and saw a load of worms on her porch, big huge worms like she'd never seen before, and loads of baby worms crawling around. She said there were only a few huge ones, very huge, long, and thick, and she said there were about 80 baby worms. "I think they were just having babies". She said her mate poured hot water on them and rinsed them off of the porch. She said it was like they came out of no where... or rather the downpour of that day.

I said "Maybe they did rain down..."

I was going to share the story after I'd heard it, but like so many things it got shuffled to the corner and forgot about... but, after reading this fish story for the second time within a day... thought I'd mention it, minus the details I'd once asked for, jotted down in note pad... saved and named improperly so that I can't tell which file it might be in... oh, well, can always get those details again later.


It's raining fish ... no really


February 28th, 2010



WHILE the Top End and Central Australia have been battered by torrential rains, a Territory town has reportedly had fish falling from the sky.

The freak phenomena happened not once, but twice, on Thursday and Friday afternoon about 6pm at Lajamanu, about 550km southwest of Katherine, The Northern Territory News reports.

Christine Balmer, who took the photos of the fish on the ground and in a bucket, said she had to pinch herself when she was told "hundreds and hundreds" of small white fish had fallen from the sky.

"It rained fish in Lajamanu on Thursday and Friday night," she said,

"They fell from the sky everywhere.

"Locals were picking them up off the footy oval and on the ground everywhere.

End of sidebar. Return to start of sidebar.

"These fish were alive when they hit the ground."

Mrs Balmer, the aged care co-ordinator at the Lajamanu Aged Care Centre, said her family interstate thought she had lost the plot when she told them about the event.

"I haven't lost my marbles," she said, reassuring herself.

"Thank God it didn't rain crocodiles."

Lajamanu sits on the edge of the Tanami Desert, hundreds of kilometres from Lake Argyle and Lake Elliott and even further from the coast. But it's not the first time the remote community has been bombarded by fins from above.

In 2004, locals reported fish falling from the sky, and in 1974, a similar incident captured international headlines.

The small white fish are believed to be spangled perch, which are very common through much of northern Australia.

Weather bureau senior forecaster Ashley Patterson said the geological conditions were perfect on Friday for a tornado in the Douglas Daly region.

He said it would have been an ideal weather situation to allow the phenomena to occur - but no tornados have been reported to the authority.

"It's a very unusual event," he said.

"With an updraft, (fish and water picked up) could get up high - up to 60,000 or 70,000 feet.

The only problem with the tornado theory, as has been pointed out many times in other cases, is why only spangled perch? Shouldn’t there be minnows, frogs and every other living creature from the lake in there as well? It boggles my mind to consider a tornado that is picky enough to “rain” spangled perch and nothing else it should have picked up.
but wait... there's more!

In August 1870, a deluge of “water lizards” hit Sacramento, California. The small animals were from two to eight inches long and alive when they hit the ground. The initial shower rained the lizards down so that they nearly covered the roof of the opera house. They slid down the building and into the rain spouts so that they covered the pavement around the building. The Sacramento Reporter stated that hundreds of them survived for several days in rainwater that flooded a partially dug cellar that was located nearby.


Main Street in Owingsville, Kentucky at the time of the mysterious Meat Falls of 1876.

One of the strangest stories of this sort took place on March 3, 1876 when flakes of meat fell over an area 100 yards long and 50 yards wide near the Bath, Kentucky home of Mr. and Mrs. Allen Crouch. The sky was clear at the time of the fall and the flakes of meat were described as being one to three or four inches square and appeared to be fresh beef. However, according to two gentlemen who (for some reason) decided to taste the meat, it was neither mutton nor venison.

Or perhaps it wasn’t meat at all - wrote Mr. Leopold Brandeis, whose article appeared on the strange fall in a July issue of the Sanitarian. He explained that the so-called “meat” was really nothing more than “nostic” - “a low form of vegetable substance”. He did not however, explain how this substance managed to fall from the sky. His opinion on the matter did not last for long for he was soon contacted by Dr. A. Mead Edwards, president of the Newark Scientific Association, who asked for a sample of the material that had been collected from Bath County. Brandeis was kind enough to give him the entire specimen, along with the information that he had obtained it from a doctor in Brooklyn, who had in turn been given it by a Professor Chandler.

Shortly after this, a letter from Dr. Allan McLane Hamilton was posted to the Medical Record, saying that he and Dr. J.W.S. Arnold had examined the material from the Kentucky meat shower under a microscope. The material, which had been given to them by Professor Chandler, was identified as being lung tissue from a human infant or a horse. According to the letter, “the structure of the organ in these two cases” was apparently “very similar”.

After reading the letter, Dr. Edwards called on Dr. Hamilton and was given a sample of the material that he had been studying. He was told that the samples had been sent from Kentucky to the editor of the Agriculturist, who had given them to Professor Chandler. And while the trail of where the samples had come from seemed to be growing longer and longer, Edwards noted that they seemed to be similar in character and age, although the sample given to him by Brandeis was less well preserved. Soon after, Edwards was shown a microscopic slide of a third sample of the Kentucky meat, which had been given to Professor J. Phin of the American Journal of Microscopy by a Mr. Walmsley of Philadelphia, who had in turn received it from Kentucky. The slide contained something that was “undoubtedly straited muscular fibre.”

Phin also showed Edwards a fourth sample that had been collected by A.T. Parker of Lexington, Kentucky. This sample also turned out to be muscle tissue but Edwards wanted to see more. He wrote to Parker and was sent three more samples, two of which turned out to be cartilage and the third, more muscle tissue. Edwards also passed along an explanation for the bizarre event that was currently making the rounds in Kentucky.

Locals believed that the meat had been disgorged by buzzards, “who, as is their custom, seeing one of their companions disgorge himself, immediately followed suit.” Parker did not explain just how many buzzards would be required to vomit that much meat, how much they would have had to have eaten - or just how high they had been flying as to render themselves invisible to those on the ground!

Perhaps almost as strange was the rain of living snakes that fell over the southern part of Memphis, Tennessee in 1877. These creatures reportedly ranged from about a foot to 18 inches in length and were presumed by the people of Memphis to have been swept into the air by a hurricane. Although even Scientific American asked where so many snakes would exist “in such abundance” (they fell by the thousands) “is yet a mystery.”

Fish Fall From Sky During Thunderstorm




By Karen Nelson and Mary Louise Mason
Biloxi (Miss.) Sun Herald
July 16, 2004

OCEAN SPRINGS - Something fishy happened during the hailstorm that pounded the city Tuesday evening.

Gulf Islands National Seashore Ranger Melissa Perez and volunteer Adam Wilson were pelted briefly with small, very cold fish while on the park's pier.

It was around 6 p.m. Tuesday when the storm had eased briefly. The two ran out to try and locate minnow traps that had been left on the pier.

The traps were gone, but while Perez and Wilson were looking, something began falling into the water near them causing splashes. Then two icy cold fish hit the deck of the pier and one hit Perez's hat.

"I was pretty upset that I had lost those traps, when fish fell from the sky," Perez said.

"We went for cover. One was incredibly cold and one of them actually was icy," she said. Fellow workers told her it was a rare phenomenon.

"But sure enough, it happened here," she said.

Perez didn't know how many fell into the water; the event took her by surprise. But it all happened in an area that had roughly a 20-foot diameter.

The fish that hit the deck were small, about 3 inches long, and she said that she didn't immediately recognize the species.

"The weather was so bad that we threw them off and ran for cover," she said.

Todd Adams, assistant coordinator of educational programs at J.S. Scott Marine Education Center, has a degree in physical geography and a master's in geo-science.

He ventured two possibilities: The storm could have pulled the small fish into the thundercloud where they were coated with ice until they got heavy enough to fall from the cloud or the storm could have sucked them off a fishing boat and dropped them at the park.

"Obviously there was hail," Adams said. "And a water spout will pull up and throw all types of things."

Adams, like other motorists Tuesday in Ocean Springs, experienced the storm along U.S. 90. He said the wind was blowing in one direction and then another, in a vortex action.

Debbie Anglin, another Ocean Springs resident, said she waited out what she thought was the worst of the storm at a church downtown. She left and encountered hail on Government Street near the high school at around 6 p.m., about the time the fish were falling a couple of miles east.

She said motorists were pulling over at Oak Park Elementary and at a service station on Halstead Road, where there was protection.

"I went creeping along," she said. "The hail that hit me was bigger than marbles, bouncing off the hood and hitting the windshield."

She said it sounded like rocks hitting her car.

Police Chief Kerry Belk said his department on Wednesday assessed and repaired damaged to its phone system, which was struck by lightning during the storm and went out for several minutes on Tuesday.

An awning from The 19th Hole driving range on U.S. 90 blew off and hit a mobile home in an RV park next door, he said, and there was flash flooding in several neighborhoods, including Woodhaven.

"It was a very bad storm and a very dangerous storm," Belk said. "We're thankful that there wasn't more damage throughout the city."

Husks of Corn Rain From Sky

Wichita resident Paul Corn was amazed to see enormous husks drifting down into his backyard near 13th and Woodlawn.

By Suzanne Perez Tobias And Sara Shepherd
The Wichita Eagle

For residents in some east Wichita neighborhoods Friday afternoon, the weather was particularly strange:

Partly cloudy, with a chance of corn husks.

People in homes near 13th and Woodlawn reported seeing what looked like extraordinarily large, dried corn husks spiraling down from the sky about 6 p.m.

Paul Corn (yes, that's his real name) was playing host to a family reunion in his back yard in the 1000 block of Vincent Lane on Friday afternoon. He said the family stopped swimming when they noticed something strange spiraling down from the sky.

They waited for it to land to see what it was, but the frond came to rest just over the fence in a neighbor's yard.

Then there were more. And more. Each one, about 30 inches long and 3 inches wide.

"They just kept coming down," he said. "There had to be, I don't know, a thousand of these things."

The family was curious enough to jump out of the pool and into the car, driving a short distance around the neighborhood to find more, which they did.

There is no telling how many of the leaves fell, but several were seen lying along Armour Street, between Central Avenue and 13th Street.

Officials with Weather Data Inc., a local forecasting service, said they had received no reports of the corn-husk shower. But meteorologist Jeff House seemed intrigued.

"Corn husks falling from the sky. Hmmm," he said. "That is odd."

Could they have been stirred up by a tornado in some Iowa cornfield? Blown hundreds of miles through thick summer air, only to billow down on back yards and driveways in east Wichita?

"That's a good thought," House said. "But no chance. Not today."

Our region -- in fact, the whole country -- was tornado-free on Friday. It wasn't even particularly windy, House said. Just really hot.

So maybe August turned that Iowa corn into popcorn, and the remnant husks exploded into the atmosphere?

"Doubtful," House said. "Whatever it was, it was probably caused by man."

Some residents speculated that the leaves fell from a plane. Air traffic authorities could not be reached for comment Friday night.

One more theory: University of Nebraska fans were behind it. Gearing up for another Cornhusker football season, they decided to blanket their southern rivals in a giant -- and ingenious, we might add -- Cornhusker Practical Joke.

Bill Harper is a member of the Wichita-based Kansas Cornhusker Club. "We may live in the heart of Kansas," says the group's Web site. "But our hearts belong to the HUSKERS!!"

Harper denied having anything to do with Friday's incident.

"Oh, not that I know of. I don't think any of us are behind it," Harper said. He noted, however, that the group's annual picnic is scheduled for 5 p.m. today, at the Sedgwick County Extension building at 21st Street and Ridge Road.

Mike Nieman, a witness to the mysterious corn episode, was visiting Wichita from Los Angeles. He said it seemed fitting for such a strange thing to happen in Kansas.

"It's just a magical place," he joked. "It's the land of Oz."

Honduran Festival of the Rain of Fishes



Of all the odd things that fall from the sky, fish are the most common. There have been countless fish rains for centuries, In fact, since 1998, in Yoro, Honduras they have held a festival to celebrate the annual fish rains called, appropriately, The Festival of the Rain of Fishes. The local TV station says it has been occurring twice a year lately. A National Geographic investigation determined that the fish are a blind, cave-dwelling fresh water species and their origins are a mystery. Witnesses say the fish rain is preceded by dark clouds, a thunderstorm and heavy rain. When the rain ends, there are thousands of 6- to 8-inch fish flopping around on the ground and the locals pick them up and cook them. During the rainy-fish season the locals set up frying stations and pass out fresh cooked fish as part of the celebration. Some attribute the event to a Catholic missionary, Father Jose Manuel Subirani and they call it a miracle. Apparently, he visited the town in 1854 and finding little food, prayed to God for sustenance for the people. It is said the first fish rain occurred immediately after and continues every year around the same time.



Spiders




On April 6, 2007, a rain of spiders was captured in photos by Argentine photographer, Christian Oneto Gaona. He was climbing San Bernardo Peak in Argentina’s Salta Province with friends when they noticed the ground covered with spiders. Looking up, they noticed the spiders falling from the sky. He snapped a few pictures to prove his point and then probably ran off swatting and screaming like a little girl.

I'm pretty sure I remember it raining fish and frogs here in the UK many years ago. I was too young to really appreciate the situation and therefor do not really have any info or facts about it. I'll have a look when I get to my computer.
Does anyone else remember this?

I don't think I'd ever heard of it before finding the fish story posted and looking up these others.

What is posted, and the many stories in the links, are from just a few links from the first page of the search... and those from the first several hits. I rejected a few as well, meaning, if one were to really search these stories out, and compile them... who knows how very much, or what volumes it might add up to.

Not sure myself, because I didn't go looking any further, but saw enough to believe there is probably that much more (to this phenomenon).

Water spouts/twisters/whirlwinds or whatever you want to call them, be it on dry land or over lakes or oceans, pick these animals up and transport them to other locations. I dont see much more to it. Spending time in the Australian outback, and having seen/experienced these wind anomalies, lets me know how powerful they can be even smaller ones.

Some more info:

Whirlwinds:
Quote:
A whirlwind is a weather phenomenon in which a vortex of wind (a vertically oriented rotating column of air) forms due to instabilities and turbulence created by heating and flow (current) gradients. Whirlwinds occur all over the world and in any season.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whirlwi...ic_phenomenon)


Landspouts:

Waterspouts:

Dust Devils:

And of course,

Raining Animals


Quote:
Raining animals is a rare meteorological phenomenon, although occurrences have been reported from many countries throughout history.

One hypothesis that has been offered to explain this phenomenon is that strong winds travelling over water sometimes pick up creatures such as fish or frogs, and carry them for up to several miles.

More recently, a scientific explanation for the phenomenon has been developed that involves waterspouts.

Waterspouts are capable of capturing objects and animals and lifting them into the air. Under this theory, waterspouts or tornados transport animals to relatively high altitudes, carrying them over large distances.

The winds are capable of carrying the animals over a relatively wide area and allow them to fall in a concentrated fashion in a localized area. More specifically, some tornadoes can completely suck up a pond, letting the water and animals fall some distance away in the form of a rain of animals.

This hypothesis appears supported by the type of animals in these rains: small and light, usually aquatic. It is also supported by the fact that the rain of animals is often preceded by a storm.

Why did I post this in this forum?

Looked it up because of the dead birds that rained down in Beebe, Arkansas on New Years Eve.

Update: Thousands of birds fall from the sky in Beebe

Good post Yass.


Anyone heard of the red rain of Kerala India?

This happened a few years back and I remembered something
about one of the scientists saying that it had to be extraterrestial.

Well it looks like this stuff self replicates at a certain temperature.

Did anybody follow this?

Heres a few links I could find for anybody interested.
I know I am going to see what else I can find.
