'This isn't a joke': It rained fish during a storm in Texas city

As 2021 comes to a close, a city in Texas had one last unexpected event: raining fish.

Residents in Texarkana – almost 200 miles from Dallas – saw fish fall from the sky on Wednesday and land in their yards or sidewalks, KXXV reported.

"2021 is pulling out all the tricks … including raining fish in Texarkana today. And no, this isn’t a joke," The City of Texarkana wrote in a Facebook post.

The city said raining fish is a phenomenon called "animal rain" that happens when small water animals such as frogs, crabs or small fish are swept into waterspouts that occur on the surface of the Earth.
