It's raining apples in UK

More than 100 apples rained down over a main road in Keresley, Coventry on Monday night. The street was left littered with apples. The bizarre downpour may have been caused by a current of air that lifted the fruit from a garden or orchard, releasing it over the junction of Keresley Road and Kelmscote Road. The bizarre incident was likely down to freak weather conditions causing a vortex. Keresley parish councillor Sandra Camwell said a freak black-out happened on the same road last year.

The Met Office said it was possible the apples had been scooped up by a tornado. It's hypothetically possible that a tornado could have picked them up and that they were transported in turbulent air until they fell.

 

Essentially these events are caused when a vortex of air lifts things off the ground rising up into the atmosphere until the air around it causes them to fall to earth again. Returning polar maritime air is such an unstable condition and it basically means air returning from the polar regions which is very unstable. (DailyMail)
