BIZZARE photos show the aftermath of fish raining down from the sky after a monsoon in India.
One viewer described what he saw as “unique” after sea life fell from above.
Pictures show several fish squirming on the bottom as heavy rain continues to drench local residents in Telangana state.
The area has experienced heavy rains and flooding in recent weeks after five days of red alerts were issued in 12 districts.
National highways were soaked with water, causing problems for emergency services trying to reach devastated towns and cities.
Last weekend viewers were shocked by the aftermath of a heavy downpour as fish littered the roads and streets, apb reported.
A witness who shared a video on Twitter wrote: “Amidst heavy rains in Telangana, the people of the city of Jagtial witnessed something unique.
“People of Sai Nagar in Jagtial city woke up with a surprise both on Friday and Saturday when they saw fish raining from the sky.”
He added, “Rain from fish is a rare weather phenomenon called ‘animal rain’ that occurs when small aquatic animals such as frogs, crabs and small fish are swept into gargoyles.”
India is at the peak of its monsoon season, which officials say has claimed at least two villagers their lives.
Dams have reportedly been opened in some places to ease pressure on cities amid fears of more rain falling.
Amit Prakash Yadav, Regional Commissioner of Municipalities, said: “Faced with rising water levels and increasing security, the national road from Ahmedabad to Mumbai has been closed.
“We will open the highway as soon as the water level drops.”
In 2020, floods wreaked havoc in India’s famed tea province of Assam and neighboring Nepal — leaving more than four million homeless.
The monsoon – or rainy season – typically lasts from June to September in the region, receding in early October.
