NWS Issues ‘Falling Iguana Warning’ in South Florida [VIDEO]
Living in Kentucky, we get the usual suspects, in terms of weather watches and warnings.
Severe thunderstorm, tornado, winter storm. That sort of thing.

Now, keep in mind, THEY ARE NOT DEAD. But you still wouldn't want one hitting your noggin or your windshield, I'd imagine.
And, to no one's surprise, folks are having fun with this rare phenomenon:
You just know meteorologists are making the local Miami talk show circuits with this. And if not, time to get busy.
