About 2,000 to 3,000 dead birds that fell from the sky on New Year’s Eve in Beebe were collected after a 10- to 12-hour cleaning effort by U.S. Environmental Services, city workers and residents, Mayor Mike Robertson said.
Arkansas Game & Fish is trying to figure out why 100,000 fish in Northwest Arkansas turned up dead. They were found along a 20-mile stretch between the Ozark Dam and Highway 109 Bridge in Franklin County.

The reports I am reading seem to say physical trauma occurred to the birds. I am not too sure about the fish. When I first heard the reports I was afraid it may have been poisoning but that was ruled out pretty quickly.
They mentioned maybe a lightning strike or high altitude hail.
When I think about it, maybe lightning could be responsible for both?
I hope they are able to come up with some answers for this.
