Rains of fish, frogs, and other aquatic creatures have been recorded with surprising frequency throughout history. The conventional explanation is that tornadoes or waterspouts scoop the creatures out of bodies of water and then transport them substantial distances before releasing them.
This is the third such event at Lajamanu in the past 30 years. Local residents apparently have said "thanks for all the fish" and are grateful that the waterspout did not scoop up crocodiles.
