Fish fall from sky with rain in northern Mexico

According 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.
