A massive storm ravaged the Mediterranean island nation of Malta south of Italy on Sunday, causing it to rain fish, literally.  

Debris and uprooted trees were everywhere.

Friends of Gambling911.com posted photos on their personal Facebook page of the damage with many sidewalks littered with shattered glass.

From MSN:

Scenes on this Mediterranean island turned biblical on Sunday as fish were thrown from the sea onto the land and picked up by the locals. This was not some supernatural event but the result of a straight-forward winter storm.

In Luqa, inland from the capital, Valetta, the east-north-easterly wind gusted to over 90 kilometres per hour regularly from the start of Sunday until the evening. The same wind built up the waves, drove them into the many bays of Malta's north coast, and fish caught up in the waves were thrown onto the road.

Malta is home to hundreds of online betting firms.
