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.
“Huge” infestation is threatening to destroy communities and economies in east Africa that is entirely reliant on local food supply. One media source likened it to a Biblical Locust Plague With Swarms the Size of Cities.
