Piezoelectric Fires and Anomalous Levitation in Coventry, England

After a series of storm warnings, drivers in the evening rush hour were prepared for almost anything.
Except, that is, for it to start raining apples. Scores of them battered car roofs and windscreens before landing in the road at a busy junction in Coundon, Coventry.
The deluge of fruit brought traffic to a standstill at 6.45pm on Monday. A 20-yard stretch of the B4098 was left strewn with green slush after the incident.
One motorist, who was travelling with her husband, said: 'The apples fell out of nowhere. They were small and green and hit the bonnet hard. Everyone had to stop their cars suddenly.'
It's Raining Fish, Maggots and Frogs: Other Storm Oddities
On October 5, 1967, thousands of maggots fell like rain over Acapulco, Mexico, after a heavy storm. In 1996 dozens of frogs were reported to be falling from the sky in Llanddewi, Wales and again in Croydon, London in 1998.
More recently, on August 18, 2004, fish fell from the sky on to the village of Knighton, Powys. In August 2007 fish also rained down in the streets of Great Yarmouth, Norfolk after a mini-tornado at sea.
The explanation is down to a typical spell of British summer weather, where a few hot days are often followed by a thunderstorm.
Vigorous updrafts on a hot day may have sucked the frogs, fish and other small creatures into a developing thunder cloud, only to deposit them again in heavy rain downwind.
The phenomenon is believed to be down to a mini tornado which touched down elsewhere, sucking apples from the ground or from trees. Such a powerful vacuum could have travelled for many miles before the tornado's energy dissipated, depositing the fruit over Coventry.
Another theory is that the apples could have fallen from the hold of a plane. Brian Meakins, 63, was stunned when he opened his front door and found his garden full of smashed apples. The retired forklift truck driver said: 'At first I assumed kids must have thrown them because we do get the occasional egg and apple thrown but there's way too many for that.
Jim Dale, senior meteorologist from British Weather Services, said the event was probably caused by 'returning polar maritime air'. 'Essentially these events are caused when a vortex of air, kind of like a mini tornado, lifts things off the ground rising up into the atmosphere until the air around it causes them to fall to earth again.
'Returning polar maritime air is such an unstable condition and it basically means air returning from the polar regions which is very unstable.
'We've all heard of fish and frogs falling from the sky and apples is certainly unusual because they have some weight to them but it is not out of the realms of possibility.'
The Met Office yesterday warned that a storm expected to hit the south coast tonight and tomorrow would bring more 70mph winds lashing seafronts along the coastline. Cold air coming in with it to the north could result in snow across the Midlands and parts of Wales, and higher ground in the South.
Other than snowfall seen around Bath, Somerset and higher ground in Gloucestershire yesterday, this will represent the first of the winter for England and Wales beyond the far North.
Spokesman Dan Williams said: 'At lower levels we expect snow to fall as sleet, but some places will see settled accumulated snow, as high as 10cm (4in) falling on higher ground in the North.'
He also warned drivers to beware of ice across most of the UK today and in northern areas through Friday and Saturday.
On Tuesday night, a five vehicle pile-up on the M5 in Gloucestershire left a Royal Mail lorry driver dead and the carriageway closed for the night. Police described the road surface as 'an ice rink'.

A man in his 30s is in a serious condition in hospital after suffering 50 per cent burns in a mystery fire at his Coventry home.
The victim called emergency services to the address in Gulson Road, Stoke, between the junctions of Strathmore Avenue and London Road, at 8am yesterday morning.
He has been transferred to a specialist burns ward in hospital.
Forensic examiners are at the scene and police are appealing for witnesses.
A West Midlands Police spokesman said: "We'd like to speak to anyone who was in the area - specifically the top end of Gulson Road near London Road - between 5am and 8am this morning and may have seen anyone acting suspiciously.
"We have not yet been able to establish how the man came about his injuries. The house itself has suffered only limited fire damage." ...
These unusual fires are being caused all over the world by an unrecognized force: ultra-low frequency sound, far below the audible level of most humans. This infrasonic influence is building strong electrical currents in the metal objects like wheel-barrows, door-knockers and copper electrical wiring in the walls of homes, which then become hot enough to ignite the plastic sheathing surrounding the wires. In other cases, heated wires ignite bed mattresses and metal hangers ignite clothing.
The infrasound which is now being focused onto the Coventry, England vicinity is being transduced by the Orion pyramids of present-day Giza, Egypt, which act as a nonlinear lensing system for resonantly balancing the geomagnetic fields of Earth as stimulated by coronal mass ejections from the increasingly active sun.
Coventry, England (52.41°N 1.50°W) is 2,265 miles from Giza, or 9.1% of the Earth's mean circumference distance (of 24,892 miles). Other related events caused by the same infrasound resonance are occurring in England in Hull, Egham and Wisbech, and in various parts of Irland, especially Dublin, Longford and Glasgow.
Ancient megalithic sacred sites like Stonehenge also share this resonant alignment at 9.0%, while the locations of piezoelectric firestorms in Ireland sits along the 10.0% resonant distance from Giza, as do the locations of megalithic sites such as Knowth, Dowth and Newgrange. These huge standing stone complexes were constructed using these infrasound standing waves for acoustic levitation of both stones and water, and left artifacts displaying this geometric knowledge.
The cases have become so severe that spontaneous combustion of objects by piezoelectric induction has been recurring in spates - in areas such as Tenerife, Babura, Abuja, Bauchi, Jos, Omukondo, Onakaheke, Tsholotsho, Lalapansi, Goodhope, Nairobi, Mpumalanga, Mapuve, Bodibe, Bloemfontein, Hopewell, Cape Town, Landovica, Messina, Peschici, Berici, across northern Greece, Ratria, Kakori, Mumbai, Kolkata, Charajpura, Thiruvananthapuram, Kishtwar, Rangrik, Kota Baru, Kuala Lumpur, Santo Tomas, Rockhampton, Adelaide, Brisbane, Eaglehawk, Sydney, Georgetown, La Pampa, Melipilla, Nelson and in the US in Seattle, Corvallis, Soudan SP, Minneapolis, New Ulm, Colorado Springs, Pueblo, Anderson, Homosassa, San Mateo, Vallejo, San Francisco, Hope Ranch, Santa Barbara, Clovis, Calaveras, Haverhill, Peabody, Brentwood and New York City.
