    There was something fishy about the weather this week at an Oroville elementary school.

    Stanford Elementary received a downpour… of fish!

    NBC-affiliate Action News Now reports the campus was hit Tuesday with the weather phenomenon. School officials tell the Chico station the school was covered in tiny fish as a storm cloud passed over the campus.

    Many on campus thought the incident was part of a prank.

    That theory went out the window when they saw it rain fish with their own eyes, the school's librarian, Rachael Thompson, told Action News Now.

    Officials believe it’s possible a water spout formed above a nearby small body of water, sucked up the fish, and then carried them to the school.

    However, as of now, there is no official explanation.
