Apples literally fall from the sky hitting residents and motorists on Kelmscote to Keresley Road in Coventry, UK. The Met Office said the apples had been scooped up by a tornado, similar to the Great Yarmouth incident when hundreds of fish were falling out of the sky. The baffled residents first thought that the children were playing a prank, but it was no laughing matter because people were getting hurt.
Moreover, there are no trees in the countryside village with this fruit on them, so where did they come from?
One motorist told the Telegraph:
“The apples fell out of the sky as if out of nowhere. They were small and green and hit the bonnet hard. There were other cars on the road at the time too and everyone had to stop their cars suddenly.”
Dave Meakins, a retired fork lift truck driver, said at first he thought the fruit had been thrown as a prank by children.
“I assumed kids must have thrown them because we do get the occasional egg and apple thrown but there’s way too much for that. I would love to know where they came from,” Meakins said.
A few thought that possibly the apples fell from a passing plane.
However the Met Office is quite sure it was a tornado that hurled them into the direction of the Keresley and Kelmscote roadways.
“It’s hypothetically possible that a tornado could have picked them up and that they were transported in turbulent air until they fell, a spokesperson said.”
Jim Dale, senior meteorologist, from British Weather Services, said:
“The weather we have at the moment is very volatile and we probably have more to come.”
One resident simply said, it is a part of the world where weird things just happen, last year around the same time the same stretch of roadway lost power with no apparent reason. It wasn’t the apples or the fish. There was no apparent reason for it.
