Telegraph said Lajamanu, a town in the Northern Territory with a population of 669, saw countless small white fish falling from the sky. Many still live when touching the ground. Those are the perch.
Weather experts in Australia believe that the pangasius is sucked up in a storm before falling into the small town.
Mark Kersemakers, an expert from the Australian Bureau of Meteorology, said that the storm hose the storm created could bring fish to a height of 12-15 km in the air.
'Once sucked up, the fish will freeze because of the cold. After a while they fall down, ' the newspaper quoted Kersemakers.
According to Northern Territory News, this is the third time in less than 30 years the people of Lajamanu town witnessed fish rains. Two previous fish rains occurred in 1974 and 2004.
Joe Ashley, a 55-year-old resident in the town of Jabiru, thinks disaster will occur if larger fish fall from the sky.
'If the crocodiles get sucked up and fall, the situation will be very scary,' commented Ashley.
