Villagers in west Sri Lanka have said they have been surprised and delighted by an unusual rainfall of small fish.

The edible fish fell during a storm and are believed to have been lifted out of a river during a strong wind.

It is an amazing phenomena, heck I struggle with a net, and yet wind just picks them up.......

They get some wild weather down in that region. I wonder if events like this are really that rare, or if it's just rare that they happen in populated areas and get noticed? In the midwest a tornado will empty an entire runoff pond as it passes over and send everything in it up into the air. People a mile or two away will find fish on the ground. But not hundreds of them, usually.

They would be in a living hell just from the smell of rotting fish.
