My elderly mother mentioned remembering that it rained frogs years ago. I also remember that in Pineville, Kentucky, after a hard rain, many tiny frogs would be on the main highway hopping around. Do they come from their hiding places or from the clouds, after being sucked up into a storm?
In the United States, documented cases of showers of frogs have been recorded since 1794, usually during heavy summer rainstorms. Whirlwinds, waterspouts, and tornadoes are given as the conventional explanations. Falls of fish, birds, and other animals also have been reported.
