An unusual phenomenon has surprised scientists in the United States. Following the rain in Hoboken city of New Jersey, hundreds of earthworms made a figure that resembled a tornado on a sidewalk. The unusual case earned the nickname “Vermnado”.
Tiffany Fisher, a member of the city council – a body similar to a city council – Hoboken, obtains photographs of animals from a city dweller and shares them on his Facebook.
“Has anyone seen anything like this? It’s a tornado of insects that was near Maxwell Park. There are clearly insects coming out after it rains, but it’s something I’ve never seen before,” he asked.
Has anyone ever seen anything like this? It is a tornado of insects that was near Maxwell Park in Hoboken this morning. Apparently insects come out after the rain but this is one thing I’ve never seen!

“This tornado format is very interesting,” said Kyungsoo, a professor in the Department of Soil, Water and Climate at the University of Minnesota. Scientists study how earthworms change ecosystems, and emphasized that although it is common for animals to rise from the ground after rain, they had never seen this spiral shape before.
Saad Bhamla, an assistant professor at Georgia Tech, speculated that sudden changes in soil water, along with the size of the Earth, may contribute to earthworms reaching this size that resembles a tornado.
“If water was drained by the soil in this format, insects could follow their shields,” he said.
