It’s raining octopus!

We all know the expression – “It’s raining cats and dogs” but the Chinese city of Qingdao has just been hit by a storm which included octopuses, starfish and prawns.

The freakish storm packing hurricane force winds, caused widespread disruption with heavy rain and hail which shattered windows and pockmarked buildings.

It is believed that offshore waterspouts were responsible for the dumping of shrimps, octopus, starfish and other marine creatures on the city.

Now there’s a sight you don’t see every day!

Later in the show I was joined by Margaret Mills who told us of links between two Essex villages – Fryerning and Purleigh  – with Disney and Washington.

Listen again here to what Margaret had to say on this subject: –

About Scott Ross

A lifelong passion for radio, love of music and a belief in the importance of real local radio! These are the reasons why I joined Phoenix FM, where I've been presenting a regular show since August 2010. My regular weekday midday shows are shared with other presenters and include funny stories and a wide variety of guests. When I'm not on Phoenix FM you can catch me on other radio bands as I am also a licenced radio amateur - 2E0ESX. Radio is supposed to be a “fun’” industry so it’s really great to be part of a real local station offering the freedom to be ourselves and have fun on air.
