People walked the streets under umbrellas and asked what to do during the apocalypse. Some eyewitnesses are sure that in fact they were poplar flowers.
In the Chinese province of Liaoning, bordering North Korea, “rain of worms” began. This is written by the Chinese tabloid Wion.
Small worms covered the roads and parked cars, and people walked the streets under umbrellas. Authorities urged local residents to be careful and stay at home.
Insects could have been blown away by strong winds during a storm
One of the assumptions for the appearance of insects is that they were blown away by a strong wind during a storm. Some eyewitnesses said that in fact they were poplar flowers. Their inflorescences resemble writhing worms.
“It’s raining worms in China, what will you do during the apocalypse?” asked on Chinese social media.
Others claimed that the video was fake and could be a joke. Chinese journalist Shen Shwei claimed that there had been no rain in Beijing lately.
“If I was just going about my business on a normal day in China and it was raining worms, I would just die,” said another user.
A similar incident occurred in 2011 in Scotland. Physical education teacher David Crichton taught the sophomores. Suddenly they heard a knock on the field and saw worms falling from the sky.
Recall that in early February, scientists from the Finnish University of Turku were able to modify worms that can help determine the purity of indoor air.
Scientists also found that annelids are one of the most ancient living organisms that inhabit the planet. Fossils of the annelid worm Iotuba chengjiangensis date back about 515 million years.
