Long live fortean events, and may they never be explained as such would make the world a more-boring place!
The only fish that float are the dead ones. The live ones swim.
Its not that the tornadoes are selective, the human mind is.
Not to say that your line of questioning is rediculous, but what are you gonna remember.. falling twigs... or fish.
No doubt some falls were staged, many people have staged many paranormal events. Humans in general are big fat liars who just want attention.
Waterspouts that are not associated with a rotating updraft of a supercell thunderstorm are known as "non-tornadic" or "fair-weather waterspouts", and are by far the most common type. Fair-weather waterspouts occur in coastal waters and are associated with dark, flat-bottomed, developing convective cumulus towers. Waterspouts of this type rapidly develop and dissipate, having life cycles shorter than 20 minutes.
When close to shorelines, waterspouts can devastate nearby coral reefs and marine organisms close to the surface
A winter waterspout, also known as a snow devil, an icespout, an ice devil, a snonado, or a snowspout, is an extremely rare instance of a waterspout forming under the base of a snow squall. The term "winter waterspout" is used to differentiate between the common warm season waterspout and this rare winter season event. Very little is known about this phenomenon and only six known pictures of this event exist to date, four of which were taken in Ontario, Canada.
