It was raining fish in Texarkana East Texas town on Wednesday

It seems that 2021 is less than a year, and now there are fish falling from the sky in eastern Texas. On Wednesday, several residents of Texarkana posted pictures and videos on social media after spotting fish scattered in unlikely places such as lawns and sidewalks.

The city of Texarkana stated: “All the techniques will be introduced in 2021…including the rain in Texarkana today.” “No, this is not a joke.”

According to the city, this phenomenon is called “animal rain” and occurs when small aquatic animals are rolled up by waterspouts or drafts on the surface of the earth.

When the forecast calls for showers, animals such as frogs, crabs, and small fish will rain.

“Although this is not common, it did happen, as demonstrated in several places in Texarkana today,” the city said. “And, for everyone, let us stand on tiptoe as quietly as possible into 2022.”

As evidence of the post-apocalyptic scene, there are only 4-5 inches of silver and white small fishes left, scattered in the dealer’s parking lot, the dealership across the street, and the tire shop next door, according to KXAN.

However, local residents told Texarcana Gazette that at least four places in the town suffered heavy rains with fish. Although some people said they only saw a few fish falling from the sky, others reported seeing as many as 30 fish.

In a Facebook post, the city told residents that this rare and bizarre sight was not a trick or joke, and explained that aquatic creatures are sometimes swept by strong storms, as they experienced that day. In the comments in response to the post, the residents shared photos of the fish they found.

Officials wrote in the post: “Animal rain is a phenomenon that occurs when small aquatic animals such as frogs, crabs, and small fish are rolled up by waterspouts or drafts on the surface of the earth.” “Then they are. It rained at the same time it rained. Although this is not common, it did happen, as evidenced by several places in Texarkana today.”
