Rain Of Worms Falls Down The Sky In China, Residents Panic.
Residents of the Chinese province of Liaoning were advised to seek shelter after it appeared that worms were raining.
A viral video appeared to show the area being showered with little worms, which were splattered all over cars.
The video showed residents covering themselves with umbrellas as they went about their daily lives and passed by.
While the cause of the slimy creature disaster is unknown, the scientific journal Mother Nature Network speculated that the animals were blown away by strong winds.
According to the publication, this type of occurrence occurs after a storm when insects become entangled in a whirlpool.
Another theory suggested that the worms were actually poplar flowers — a tulip tree whose blooms resemble the squirmy beasts.
Viewers were stunned by the city’s current problem, with one person stating: “These are not worms or animals, but flower stalks dropped from trees.”
Someone else claimed that the video was fake and looked like a prank.
“Strange phenomena,” a user added, with another weighing in, “If i was just minding my business on a casual day in China and it started raining worms ?? i’d just die.”
A similar odd event went down last December when it was believed that iguanas could rain down from trees in Florida due to colder temperatures.
“They slow down or become immobile when it’s below 40,” WFTV meteorologist Brian Shields posted on Twitter last winter. “They may fall from trees, but they aren’t dead.”
The incident is reportedly not uncommon when colder weather hits the Sunshine state. When temperatures drop, the reptiles become stiff and tumble to the ground.
While thermometer plunges stun the invasive reptiles, the iguanas won’t necessarily die. Many will simply wake up as temperatures rise.
