The people of Liaoning province were given the warning to take shelter after it appeared as if it began to pour slimy worms from the sky.
In a startling video, the area was blasted with countless small worms that splattered across cars.
In the video, citizens of the city shielded themselves with umbrellas as they traversed their daily paths.

As of yet, the source of this slimy creature disaster remains unknown; however, Mother Nature Network speculated that heavy winds could have picked them up and dropped them from the sky.
The publication observed that this phenomenon typically occurs after a storm when bugs become entrapped in the vortex of a whirlpool.
Another hypothesis proposed that the worms were actually tulip tree flowers that bear a striking resemblance to wiggling creatures.
Upon observing the city’s current issue, viewers were stunned, with one person remarking: “These are not worms or animals, but flower stalks dropped from trees.”
Another individual challenged that the video was fraudulent and appeared to be a practical joke.
“Strange phenomena,” a user said, and another added, “If i was just minding my business on a casual day in China and it started raining worms ?? i’d just die.”
Last December, an unexpected phenomenon occurred when reports swirled that iguanas were falling from the sky in Florida due to colder temperatures.
“They slow down or become immobile when it’s below 40,” WFTV meteorologist Brian Shields wrote on Twitter. “They may fall from trees, but they aren’t dead.”
As the temperature dips in Florida, it’s not unusual for reptiles to become rigid and plummet from their former perches. This phenomenon is a regular occurrence during colder weather in the so-called Sunshine State.
As temperatures plummet and shock the foreign lizards, it won’t necessarily be fatal; many will merely awaken when warmth returns.
