Officials in north-east Mexico said small fish fell from the sky during a light rain shower.

The civil defence agency said in a brief statement that rain in the coastal city of Tampico included fish. Photos posted on the agency’s Facebook page showed four small fish in a bag and another on a sidewalk, reports The Associated Press.

According to the US Library of Congress, it’s a phenomenon that has been reported since ancient times. Scientists believe that tornadoes over water, known as waterspouts, could be responsible for sucking fish into the air, where they are blown around until being released to the ground.
