On the tops of haystacks

On July 25, 1850, at Rajkote, India, according to All the Year Round, 8-255, after one of the heaviest rainfalls on record, the ground was found “literally covered with fishes.” Apparently some of the fish were found on “the tops of haystacks.”

Some were much larger than others

The Jour. Asiatic Soc. of Bengal, 2-650, and the Amer. Jour. Sci., 1-32-199, record a fall of fishes near Feridpoor, India, on Feb. 19, 1830. They were of varying sizes. Some were “whole and fresh,” while others were “mutilated and putrefying.”

In witness depositions, some fish were reported as fresh, while others were “stinking and headless.”

Some of the fish weighed 1 ½ pounds each, while others were as much as 3 pounds.

A good one for exclusionists

Fishes fell from the sky on Feb. 11, 1859, at Mountain Ash, in the Valley of Abedare, Glamorganshire.
