Cloudy with a Chance of Crayfish (Part 1 of 2)

Have you ever heard about the strange things that fall from the sky during storms? We’ll tell you about some of them on today’s Creation Moments Minute.

Though we are aware of no confirmed reports of meatballs falling from the sky during a rainstorm, there have been hundreds of reports of strange things falling from the clouds during strong storms. And sometimes, this even includes living animals.

Another storm of living creatures happened on June 28, 1957, near Thomasville, Alabama. This was when thousands of live fish, frogs, and crayfish fell from the sky during a heavy rain. It was thought that an F2 tornado fifteen miles to the south was responsible for this strange phenomenon.

Next time we look at other instances of strange rain throughout history.

For Creation Moments Minute, I’m Darren Marlar.
