A rather strange storm hit Mexico this week, as it seemed fish were falling from the sky.

The fish started landing on the street during a shower in Tampico, in the state of Tamaulipas, according to Daily News.

The Facebook page for Tamaulipas Civil Protection posted photos of the fish that fell from above.

It described the incident as "curious."



It is thought that the fish actually actually appeared due to strong winds.

If winds are strong enough over water hey can form a low-pressure central vortex, leading in turn ti a rotating funnel.

Scientists claim this can be strong enough to pull the fish from the water and they stay in the air being buffeted by the wind until rainfall, when they fall back down with it.
