What could cause this?

The most simple explanation would be that nearby water and forest was sucked up with the live creatures inside it into a tornado or something and dropped on the town.

The Black Knight of Whitehall

« Reply #1 on: July 25, 2009, 01:17:25 pm »


I was on vacation once and it rainned little fish.  It seems when the wind whips the seaside town were were stay at the spray from the surf sents out these little fish onto the road.  It was interesting and sad at the same time really as they need the water to live and they did not taste good to eat.  Free feast for the sea birds though it was. 

So like all children's myths told in stories like rainning cats and dogs there might be a basis in fact.

Past the Corridor of Fire
Through the Doors of Mist
Into the Tomb of Mirrors
Ever watching
The Black Knight of Whitehall
Armor of Darkness
And in his left hand
The Sword of Dusk
And in his right
The Shield of Dawn
Through shadowed eyes in a dark helm
He will watch over the Soul of Light

October 24, 1987 Britain’s The Daily Mirror and The Daily Star reported that some old lady had informed the Gloucester Wildlife Trust that she witnessed her native town of Stroud was blanketed with rain of pink frogs during a storm. The woman said she had seen that thousands of frogs were falling down from the skies on umbrellas of passers-by and on the pavement, and then rushed to brooks and gardens in search of shelter. The newspapers also stated that citizens also had seen lots of pink frogs in some other place two weeks before, but nobody said the frogs were falling down from the sky. Both newspapers reported the opinion of naturalist Ian Darling who examined many of the pink frogs. He said they belonged to some albino breed, and the pink color of their skin was owing to blood vessels seen through the skin. Right at that period, Great Britain was hit with the Sahara red sands. And the naturalist believed that the pink frogs appeared as a result of a whirlwind that took the frogs away to thousands of miles.
Other naturalists did not support the opinion. The majority of newspapers reported that no matter what type of frogs was seen in both places, they just jumped out of the grass or bushes that was quite typical of them. They added the old lady who alleged that she saw pink frogs was too eccentric to be trusted.

It is not clear why frogs may fall down from the skies together with rain more often than other creatures. However, there is quite enough evidence proving that reports of rains of frogs or other creatures are not a mere fake.

In his work, Charles Fort describes dozens of reports about rains of frogs and other creatures registered in the second half of the 19th century and at the beginning of the 20th century. Minneapolis , Minnesota , was pelted with frogs and toads in July, 1901. A news item stated: “When the storm was at its highest... there appeared as if descending directly from the sky a huge green mass. Then followed a peculiar patter, unlike that of rain or hail. When the storm abated the people found, three inches deep and covering an area of more than four blocks, a collection of a most striking variety of frogs... so thick in some places [that] travel was impossible.” After Fort died in 1932, the number of similar reports increased but those rains were not that massive as that in 1901.

On July 12, 1954 Englishwoman Sylvia Mouday was one of those who witnessed a heavy shower of khaki colored frogs at fair in Birmingham ’s Satton-Colefield. The woman saw frogs jumping on people’s umbrellas and then covered an area of 50 square yards.
