Invasion of EARTH WORMS after heavy rain before -3C cold snap

[ad_1]

RESIDENTS in a village in Thailand saw their homes completely covered in earthworms as heavy thunderstorms moved through the region.

A video shot in Tak, lower northern Thailand, shows residents waking up to a scene straight out of a horror movie as roughly 6-inch-long earthworms crawled around the province.

AccuWeather Meteorologist Renee Duff said that in a 24-hour period prior to when the video was shot, Tak picked up “3.13 inches (79.6 mm) of rainfall as heavy thunderstorms moved through the region.” 

Hopefully we won’t see this happen in the UK, despite mercury being forecast to plunge to -3C next week.

Met Office forecaster Tom Morgan told the Express that “some rural spots” could even see lows of -3C in overnight frosts during the first part of the week.

Londoners can expects temperatures to drop to as low as 4C, while those in Scotland, parts of Belfast and across parts of northern England may see experience freezing conditions.
