According to Dire Dawa Agriculture, Water, Mining and Energy Bureau Public Relations Officer Hadera Yesuf the fish rain happened in Dechatu and Finfinne or 05 and 06 kebeles of urban areas as well as Eyawale Woreda, Adada kebele in rural Dire Dawa.

People in these areas were stunned by the occurrence to the extent of referring it a blessing from Almighty God, she said.

According to Wikipedia, raining animals is a rare meteorological phenomenon in which flightless animals fall from the sky. This helped me a lot 🙂
