As if the COVid-19 breakout across the world wasn’t enough, there’s another rare occurrence of an apocalyptic event unfolding across east African countries as hundreds of millions of locusts descend on farm fields and cities.
These creatures have been reported to travel in swarms of millions that can sometimes measure up to 40 miles wide. These insects are now pushing through Somalia, Kenya, and Ethiopia.

The invading locusts are “deadly” in the sense that these ‘mega-swarms’ devour crops at an incredibly rapid pace — at a faster rate of destruction than other natural disasters.

Out in the distance, a black blob can be seen, looks almost like a cloud, but when the vehicle drives closer, it turns out to be locusts.
