"The rainy season has just started in Tokyo, but residents in a small coastal town have reported a different phenomenon: tadpoles dropping out of the sky.

An office clerk in Nanao first noticed the anomaly when he heard a dull thud in a parking lot last week, news reports said.

Looking around, he saw about 100 dead tadpoles splattered on car windscreens and on the ground."

Oh man that's just freaky.

I'm guessing that the water evaporated and took the tadpoles with it into the sky?

Im not good with weather stuff so feel free to correct me if Im wrong.

Tadpoles got caught up in a waterspout/tornado...go up into the atmosphere and rain down somewhere else.

yeah, freaky how that waterspout/tornado was very picky in choosing what to pick up!

It must have taken a liking to tadpoles I guess!

This happend before with fish,


Animals can rain from the sky Raining animals is a relatively common meteorological phenomenon, with occurrences reported from many countries throughout history. The animals most likely to drop from the sky in a rainfall are fish and frogs, with birds coming third. Sometimes the animals survive the fall, especially fish, suggesting a small time gap between the extraction and the actual drop. Several witnesses of raining frogs describe the animals as startled, though healthy, and exhibiting relatively normal behavior shortly after the event. In some incidents, however, the animals are frozen to death or even completely enclosed in blocks of ice. These occurrences may be evidence for the transport of the victims to high altitudes, where the temperature is below zero, and they show how powerful meteorological forces can be. Most recent occurrences include the rain of frogs and toads in Serbia (2005) and London (1998), and rains of fish in India (2006) and Wales (2004). In Honduras, the Lluvia de Peces (Rain of Fishes) is a unique phenomenon that has been occurring for more than a century on a yearly basis in the country of Honduras. It occurs in the Departamento de Yoro, between the months of May and July. Witnesses of this phenomenon state that it begins with is a dark cloud in the sky followed by lightning, thunder, strong winds and heavy rain for 2 to 3 hours. Once the rain has stopped, hundreds of living fish are found on the ground. People take the fish home to cook and eat them. Although some experts have tried to explain the Rain of Fishes as a natural meteorological phenomenon, the fish are not sea water fish, but fresh water fish; they are not dead, but alive; they are not blind, they have eyes; they are not big fish, but small; and the type of fish is not found elsewhere in the area. There is no valid scientific explanation for this phenomenon. Many people believe this phenomenon occurs because of Father José Manuel Subirana, a Spanish catholic missionary and considered by many to be a Saint. He visited Honduras from 1856-1864, and upon encountering so many poor people, prayed for 3 days and 3 nights asking God for a miracle to help the poor people by providing food. The Rain of Fishes has occurred ever since.

This explains it all.

Were there any waterspouts in the area?

Years ago I watched a large dirt devil pick up corn stalks from a field and take them high into the sky. I wondered where they were going because they were not falling back down to the ground. Later that day, reports of corn stalks falling from the sky about 20 miles away occurred.

So... that dirt devil was able to transport basically nothing but corn stalks and transport them about 20 miles away before dropping them from the sky.

Probably the same thing happened except with a water spout. But.. it could have happened with a large dirt devil also. All it would have had to do was to go over top of a large pond that was drying up and pick up the tadpoles that were still surviving and drop them off down the road a ways.

Good find my friend.
