Weird weather rains seaweed over UK village

18 posts in this topic

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.

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:

By throwing seaweed at it?

He has the choice of flood, fire, pestilence, death upon the firstborn, etc.... And he decides on algae.

That'll teach'em :devil:

I'm not a scientist and did NOT play one on TV... but I'd think that they should test the seaweed and if that does not work then all they have to do is test the sand that came embedded in the seaweed to determine where this seaweed came from. This is how the USA discovered where the Japanese ballon bombs were coming from during WWII. They tested the sand in the sandbags attached to the ballon bombs, found out which beach had it, and bombed the crap out of that area. Problem solved... no more ballon bombs. I also find it interesting that there is usually only one item that comes down in these strange storms. Did they ever say where the apples came from...??? Afterall, apples were not in season when they came down in a storm in England. I'd really like some follow ups and not just the original stories... but then again they would just lie or make something up IF they had no sound explainations.
