Live fish fall from the sky over Indian town

Amalapuram residents were left scratching their heads recently after fish started to rain down from above.
The unusual meteorological event, which occurred in India's coastal Andhra region, saw small fish being deposited on the ground during a rainstorm as cyclone Phethai made landfall nearby.

Footage recorded at the time by locals (see below) shows the fish wriggling around in puddles.
While unusual, fish can sometimes be sucked up in to the air by strong winds before being dropped hundreds of miles away. It can also happen to frogs, eels and other small aquatic creatures.

In total, around 100 fish of a species known locally as 'Gidasalu' were deposited over the area.

I've heard of this happening several times before. It's still weird.

It is odd, but also easily explained. I'd be worried if large creatures fell from the sky, or if it rained mammals, people, or beasts that have no business being on earth...
