Rain of worms in China
No one knows for sure what happened in China. The mystery continues to float days after the viralization of the images and even more so in the midst of absolute secrecy among the authorities.
Users began to weave different theories, some more crazy than others. Warnings of an impending “apocalypse” were followed by others alluding to a “full Worm Moon,” the last full moon of the Northern Hemisphere winter.

But there is a theory that seems to be the most credible. Some local portals mentioned that it would not be worms, but poplar tree flowers.
These flowers are similar in shape to caterpillars and are also very common in Beijing.
