Mystery Of The “Raining Fish” In Texarkana

A couple of sleuths think they’ve cracked the case of falling fish in Texarkana. Last December, hundreds of fish fell on roads, roofs, and even the runway in Texarkana during a storm. Pennsylvania independent natural phenomenon researcher Sharon Hill and Australian author Paul Cropper think Cormorants dumped them from the mouths and stomachs.
