On June 13, the city of Qingdao was suddenly engulfed by convective weather caused by strong winds, hail and thunderstorms. A large number of trees in the urban area were broken, blocking traffic damaging cars vehicles. And some sea creatures started to fall from the sky. The first picture shows an octopus blown onto the windshield of a car.
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 in 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.
Beginning of last month, fish fell from the sky in Iran, China and India.
