    China, raining worms from the sky?  Here’s the explanation – with video

    There is a scientific explanation for the phenomenon that disturbed the Chinese province of Liaoning a few days ago, as it is alleged that the residents sought refuge because of Worm-like creatures rained down from the sky. In some videos that went viral on social networks around the world, what looked like earthworms were seen scattered all over the cars. The people walking down the street had their umbrellas open in front of the “rain of worms”.

    According to the science magazine Mother Nature Network, the most likely explanation for the crash is that the animals were blown away by high winds and fell across the city. This happens when the insects get caught in a whirlpool during a storm, the newspaper said.

    Some people have suggested instead that the slimy-looking objects were not worms but poplar flowers, buds, and seeds that looked like earthworms. “These are not worms or animals, but stems from flowers that fell from trees,” one user said on Twitter. Another user wrote: “The things that fall from poplar trees in the spring are not caterpillars, but inflorescences of poplars. When the thorns of a poplar begin to fall off, it means it is about to bloom.”
