ABC's Marlei Martinez reports from London:

We’ve all heard of the expression, “It’s raining cats and dogs.” Some of us remember the Weather Girls’ hit “It’s Raining Men.” Now, one Australian town has seen its first downpour of fish.

It’s raining fish in Lajamanu. The Daily Mail reports that small white fish rained down on the town in the Northern Territory of Australia. And some of the fish were still alive!

Weather around the world has been anything but usual lately. From the earthquake in Chile to the extreme snowstorms on the East Coast of the United States, there’s no telling what will come from the earth … or the sky.

Australia’s fish rain is much like the infamous frog scene from Paul Anderson’s film “Magnolia” come true. Scientists and meteorologists say that such an event is possible. A tornado could have sucked up the fish with the water and then dropped them hundreds of miles away.
