Bemused residents in a quiet suburban street thought there was something fishy about the weather when it literally started raining seaweed.

They were stunned to find their homes, gardens and cars littered with the smelly marine algae after a stormy weather spout swept up the debris from a beach 20 miles away.

Weather experts believe the seaweed was picked up from Clevedon Beach in North Somerset by a twister during freak weather conditions on the coast.

Stupid twister.. Bet you it bypassed a big-fat bank and a jewelers factory before it ploughed into a big pile of sea weed.. NO wonder twisters have such a bad name!

How can a twister pick up only one thing?  Shouldn't there also be some sand, rocks, pieces of wood, etc.?

finally a real fortean news article! :D Lava_Lady is right, though....one should think that a twister picks up pretty much EVERYTHING of a certain weight, like seaweed, sand, fish, clams....not only one particular thing!?!

Not sure, some seaweed floats to the surface doesn't it? And it's above the sand and rocks as well. So they might have just been to far down.

I wonder if there is a fairly easy way to match the seaweed with it's source? It's odd that so many of these 'rains' are single items and not comprised of several different items.

Yes, it's true, some sea weeds do float.  I live in Hawaii and occasionally there are beds of sea weed floating, but, thereis always a plethora of things mixed into it.  Even live crabs and other ocean crud.

Heavier items would fall closer the event.. In the case of Bricks they would more likely fall closer to the banks & jewelers onto bankers, parking wardens & wheel clampers.. :w00t:
