Unusual Storm Causes Fish To Rain From Sky in Texas

Officials in one Texas town said residents weren't just imagining it when it seemed to be "raining fish" during a storm.

In a Facebook post, the city of Texarkana said that it was indeed "raining fish" during Wednesday's rainstorms.

"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.
