The Northern California town of Oroville experienced some extremely odd weather on Tuesday.
As storm clouds covered the sky, fish seemed to rain down.

According to ActionNewsNow, the tiny creatures raining from above were the result of a strange phenomenon.
Discover Science reports that it's possible for some of the littlest animals to be sucked up in a water spout that forms over a shallow body of water.
Fish are then carried in the cloud for a while, sometimes for miles at a time, until eventually dropping to the ground.
Staff at the school initially thought the fishy storm was just a prank when they noticed hundreds of tiny fish appeared on roofs throughout the campus.
During recess, fish again started raining down, pelting children on the playground with tiny, wet fish.
