startled motorists in the Coundon area of Coventry,
bemused motorists were forced to take evasive action when an avalanche of apples descended from the sky just after the rush-hour, luckily no accidents were caused as the fruit crashed to earth, baffled resident Dave Meakins opened the front door yesterday morning to find a number of smashed apples in his front garden, the 63-year-old retired fork lift truck driver cleared up the mess, initially believing it was down to misbehaving children until he looked across the road to see more apple debris and realised the scale of the phenomenon, 'I honestly don’t know where the apples could have come from,' he said,
one theory is that freak weather conditions may have caused a vortex of water pressure, which is when wind and rain form a powerful vacuum that can lift items and dump them up to 100 miles away, but apples falling from the skies are not the only strange things that have rained from the clouds, there have been other reports of strange things falling from the sky with no explanation,
on October 5, 1967, thousands of maggots fell like rain over Acapulco, Mexico, after a heavy storm,
in 1996 dozens of frogs were reported to be falling from the sky in Llanddewi, Wales and again in Croydon, London in 1998,
more recently, on August 18, 2004, fish fell from the sky on to the village of Knighton, Powys,
and finally in August 2007 fish also rained down in the streets of Great Yarmouth, Norfolk after a mini-tornado at sea, have a look here for some examples of this phenomena, I wonder if it ever rained men?
