It's Raining Fish in Iran

Residents of the city of Yasuj in central Iran recently witnessed an unusual phenomenon. Amidst the heavy rains that had been continuing for several days, people began to see live fish falling from the sky.

Social media users posted videos expressing their surprise at the fish rain. The fish, which were falling right onto the asphalt, were still wiggling and looked as if they had just been caught from the water.

According to scientists' observations, fish rain is a rare but not uncommon phenomenon. This happens when a tornado passes over water bodies, and this waterspout captures water and, along with it, fish and other organisms, into its vortex. When the wind subsides, the fish lifted by the whirlwinds fall back down, usually several kilometers away from their original location.

It is noted that the fish rain occurred after a strong storm almost 280 km from the coast.
