Could A REAL Sharknado Actually Happen?
Maybe you saw the recent movie on the SyFy Channel called "Sharknado," where sharks were mixed in with a tornado. That's just pure science fiction, but it turns out there are weather patterns that involve real animals have actually happened, and here's the story, and all I can say is "YIKES!!!"
•)Back 3 years ago In 2010, a "FISHNADO" happened in the land down under, Australia, when perch began falling from the clouds by the hundreds. Most of them were still alive and flopping around when they landed.
•)A long time ago over 100 years ago in 1894, A "JELLYFISHNADO" touched down in Bath, in the United Kingdom, where thousands of jelly fish the size of a 50 cent piece apparently rained down from the sky.
•)Down in Louisiana in July of 2007 they had a real "WORMNADO" when it was raining slithering worms in tangled clumps.
What causes these odd occurances? Apparently scientists say it's tornadoes and waterspouts. Both of these have been known to lift animals like fish, frogs and even alligators and drop them ashore, often still alive and kicking. Again, all I can say is "YIKES." But it might make catching some tasty Walleye a little easier, eh?? (mnn.com)
