Sea creatures fall on Chinese city

A ferocious storm that swept over a coastal city in China spawned conditions which caused sea creatures to rain down from the sky!

The incredible phenomenon occurred Qingdao earlier this week when winds and rain combined to flood the city and generally wreak havoc on the area. As residents were riding out the storm, they were stunned to see some proverbial visitors to the city in the form of various denizens of the deep that had been suddenly deposited onto cars and sidewalks from the sky.

Photos of the odd rainfall spread like wildfire on Chinese social media with perhaps the most iconic image being that of an octopus hurtling through the air as if it were floating in space. Other creatures caught up in the chaos were starfish and shrimp which found their way onto a number of windshields throughout the city. To those watching the weirdness safely from home, it was no doubt a wild sight, but we're guessing that those living in the city weren't as thrilled with what was going on, considering most of them were wading through knee deep water during the treacherous weather event.

The strange case of 'fishfall' in China should sound familiar to fans of Forteana or anyone who has seen the film Magnolia as such events have been frequently documented by those chronicling the strange and unusual in the past. In fact, a similar event took place here in the United States just last year when an elementary school in California was pelted with fish that also came from the clouds. So it's probably safe to say that the soaring seafood is not a sign of the End Times.


By George Noory / Coast to Coast AM Host

George Noory, host of the nationally syndicated program, Coast to Coast AM, says if he weren’t a national radio talk show host he’d be in politics. Heard by millions of listeners, Coast To Coast AM airs on approximately 564 stations in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Guam.

While hosting The Nighthawk, a wildly successful, late-night program on KTRS in St. Louis, Noory was recruited by Premiere Radio Networks to guest host on Coast to Coast AM with Art Bell.  He became the permanent host of the phenomenally successful over-night program on January 1, 2003, following Bell’s retirement.  Since then, Noory’s audience has continued to grow.

Noory captivates program listeners with his discussions of paranormal phenomena, time travel, alien abductions, conspiracies and all things curious and unexplained. He is driven, he has said, by the desire to solve the great mysteries of our time. From his first days as a radio broadcaster he says, “I’ve wanted to cover stories that the mainstream media never touch—the unusual, the paranormal and things like that. I learned that broadcast was the best business for exploring these issues, and I’ve been doing it for 33 years.”
